Wall Art and Photo Gifts from Royal Cornwall Museum
Samuel John Goviers father, Samuel Govier, and his mother, Annie, in the doorway of his photographic van, 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. In the picture, his father holds a photograph for development and a number of photographs can be seen hanging on the open door of the van. Note: the van is not the same as that shown in TRURI : Pgovis.1 as it has been modified by cutting down on the windows. Photographer: Samuel John Govier
