Guestbook 8th November 2017
Along with two colleagues, I'm compiling a book on Somerset photographers 1841-1939. Although most of the photographers included are listed in directories of the period, we've also included other photographers named in newspaper articles, and those for whom we've collected photos taken by them. We have a cabinet card image (estimated date about 1905), with a stamp on the reverse "G Gyngell, photographic artist". We understand the photographer to be Augustus Gyngell (1834-1911), and, if we have dated the photo correctly, it would be during his time at Woodcock Street, Castle Cary, Somerset. We've created a timeline for him, (as well as for the other 785 photographers we're researching), which includes biographical information, census data, and newspaper reports : the first report we've traced for AGG was in 1844 as an intrepid 8 year old "the child with the iron nerve" ! If anyone on the list knows of any interesting background stories on Augustus George Gyngell, I'd be fascinated to hear from you with many thanks. Phil Nichols.
