Samuel John Govier posed in fancy dress on his bicycle, locality unknown but somewhere in West 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. His photographic box can be seen on the front of the bike, beneath the decoration. Photograph from the Govier family album.
