Schoolmaster working as a mason, St Stephen in Brannel, Cornwall. Early 1900s
The original title is " Schoolmaster working as a mason". However, there are two possibilities. This could be the schoolmasters home and he has some form of house renovation being undertaken inside the house, which he is doing some labouring to help out. The other possibility is that he has taken delivery of house coal and is in the the process of breaking it up and storing it at the rear of the property. Note the narrow wooden miners type wheelbarrow to his right. This had a steel wheel and was common in Cornish gardens into the 1950s and 1960s. Also in the background is a barrel on wheels. The schoolmaster is using a long handled Cornish shovel. Photographer: Canon Henry Holroyd Mills
