The Gibsons  of Scilly Penwith & Cornish Photographic Archive is the work of the Cornish photographer John Gibson who, with his sons Alexander and Herbert, took thousands of photographs of Cornwall between 1860 and 1930. They, or rather fifteen hundred of them, are being sold (estimate £15-£25k) at David Lay Auctions on June 16th and 17th, an extraordinary record of everyday life in Cornwall during the Victorian period and just after. This is Newlyn in 1900.
