Wreck of the French brigantine Angele of Boulogne, Doom bar, Padstow, Cornwall. Wrecked on 13th November 1911

A view of the wreck of the French brigantine Angele of Boulogne aground on Doom Bar with the hull beginning to break up. A report of the Inquest held at Minver Farm, St Enodoc, at the east end of Doom Bar was published in the Western Morning News on Wednesday 15th November 1911. The brigantine, under the command of Captain Theodore Le Layee of Brest had left Swansea on Friday 10th November with a cargo 198 tons of coal. On Sunday the weather and wind direction changed. The wind rose rapidly and the sea was rough, because of the situation he was obliged to return. During the return several of his sails were badly damaged and the ship was no longer navigable. He resolved to make for land, arriving at Padstow Bay at around half-past five. There was an Irish Schooner in front of him and he was required to make a detour. Having passed the Irish vessel he turned back into the wind, but having no back sail on his vessel she drifted. At this moment he was 70 yards from land, and let his anchor drop, but she grounded. The Captain and crew tried to launch a small boat, but fierce wind meant that they could not get into the boat. All hands had their life jackets on but a large wave came over and swept four men into the water. The Captain clung to the rigging. When he saw the Padstow lifeboat the Arab II coming to his rescue he jumped into the water and swam towards the boat and was rescued. The deceased were: Joseph Marie Granger, 36; Merthurm Drinon, 18; Francois Le Coq, 16; and Joesph Helion, 15. The Angele was built in Bordeaux in 1875 and registered in Boulogne.

Samuel John Govier (1871-1967) was a pioneering photographer in the late 19th and early 20th century in Cornwall. In the early years he travelled on his bicycle or in a horse drawn van before setting up in a studio in Chacewater in 1907. Later, he also had a studio in St Agnes. In retirement he became a grocer in Chacewater where he lived. The photograph shows the room furnished in typical Victorian style. Screens covered in photographs can be seen on the left, including one showing his sister Hettie's wedding and one of the Trewinnard Coach in the barn at St Erth, prior to restoration. Photograph from the Govier family album. Photographer: Probably Samuel John Govier

Green Waters, Henry Scott Tuke (1858-1929)

Oil on canvas, Newlyn School, late 19th / early 20th century. A man sculling in a small boat. Henry Scott Tuke was born into a Quaker family in Lawrence Street, York. In 1859 the family moved to Falmouth, where his father Daniel Tuke, a physician, established a practice. Tuke was encouraged to draw and paint from an early age and some of his earliest drawings, aged four or five years old, were published in 1895. In 1875, he enrolled in the Slade School of Art. Initially his father paid for his tuition but in 1877 Tuke won a scholarship, which allowed him to continue his training at the Slade and in Italy in 1880. From 1881 to 1883 he was in Paris where he met the artist Jules Bastien-Lepage, who encouraged him to paint en plein air (in the open air) a method of working that came to dominate his practice. While studying in France, Tuke decided to move to Newlyn, Cornwall where many of his Slade and Parisian friends had already formed the Newlyn School of painters. He received several lucrative commissions there, after exhibiting his work at the Royal Academy of Art in London. In 1885, he returned to Falmouth where many of his major works were produced. He became an established artist and was elected to full membership of the Royal Academy in 1914. Tuke suffered a heart attack in 1928 and died in March 1929. In his will he left generous amounts of money to some of the men who, as boys, had been his models. Today he is remembered mainly for his oil paintings of young men, but in addition to his achievements as a figurative painter, he was an established maritime artist and produced as many portraits of sailing ships as he did human figures. He was a prolific artist, over 1, 300 works are listed and more are still being discovered
