A view of the living room in Samuel John Govier s house, Chacewater, Cornwall. Early 1900s

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
