Auction: 19th century East Anglia - Herbert T Cave

TW Gaze Auction Rooms, on Roydon Road in Diss will be auctioning off this Friday (17/2/12) an impressive collection of about 1,000 photographs capturing 19th century every day life in East Anglia. Taken by renowned mid-Norfolk photographer Herbert T Cave, who spent time living in Dereham and Swaffham, it includes images in various themes, including agriculture, social life, equestrian, retail, scenery and architecture. 

The collection has been separated into about 30 lots and is estimated to be worth a total of £1,000. Collectively it depicts the nature of East Anglia at the turn of the 19th century in a high level of clarity.

The sale will also consist of about 200 items of photographic interest including cameras, lenses, magic lantern slides and photographs from the 19th to the 21st centuries. The collection can be viewed on Thursday, from 2pm until 8pm and on Friday from 8.30am.
