John Charles Burrow, Cornwall. Around 1910

Three-quarter length portrait of John Charles Burrow (1852-1914) taken in full Masonic regalia. Burrow worked as a professional photographer in Camborne and is perhaps best known for his pioneering work in underground mining photography and the subsequent publication of his book Mongst Mines and Miners: being underground scenes by flash-light illustrating and explaining the methods of working in Cornish mines about 1895. He travelled extensively with his camera, throughout Cornwall. His collection of glass plate negatives are now in the care of the Royal Cornwall Museum. Photographer: Unknown
