Dominic Winter auctions are to offer six lots, including a camera, from Christine Lynch, the daughter of Frances Griffiths, the younger of the two cousins who first perpetrated the hoax back in 1917. The material is expected to realise over £50,000. The consignment includes photographs of the fairies, a Cameo camera.
