Photograph of a view of Anne Hathway's (1556-1623) Cottage near Stratford-upon-Avon. Two timber framed cottages with thatch roofs, stand side by side. In front of the cottages in a garden, bordered by a hedge that runs from the foreground to the middle distance. There is a tree in the background.

The photograph shows the building where Shakespeare's future wife, Anne Hathaway, lived and grew-up in the village of Shottery, near to Stratford-upon-Avon. In 1892, the house was acquired by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust.
