A photograph of a ford in Lamorna. An unknown man drives his horse and cart through the water.
A photograph of a granite bridge with a horse and carriage travelling over it. A river runs underneath. The amount of greenery present suggests it may be Bleu Bridge in Gulval, which similarly has iron railings and stacked supports.
A photograph of a hawker or fish jouster with his still wooden cart attached to a donkey. They stand on a built-up granite pavement just outside a store, at an unidentifiable location.
A photograph of a horse and carraige standing outside the front door of Penlee House. JR and Elizabeth Branwell sit in the carraige with their second daughter, Edith. The driver wears a top hat and holds a whip. A pram stands beside the wall to the left. Elizabeth Trewhella has dated this photograph to about 1895.
A photograph of a large boat at Penzance harbour, within the floating dock, which was opened in the 1880s. The boat is most likely to be a barquentine, perhaps a grain ship for Branwell's Mill or Bodilly's Mill at Wherrytown. St Mary's Church sits prominent. To the left is the fish market, with the white custom house central and Holman's shipping yard to the right.
