Mr Gillo's Pattern Book of Photographs of Cheddar ca. 1870

At Messrs Tamlyn & Son's Auction Rooms in Bridgwater, on 23 May 2000, Dr Cattermole bid successfully for an album of Robert Gillo's photographs (Lot 591). This Lot had come into the ownership of Squibbs of Bridgwater in 1916.

The Album seems similar to Gillo's Pattern Books in the Somerset Studies Library of the Somerset Heritage Centre. It shows pictures of Cheddar Cliffs.

Gillo worked from 32 Friarn Street between circa 1861-81. The album probably represents fairly early work, near at hand.
