Penlee House Gallery & Museum, Penzance
The artistic heart of West Cornwall's history

Notes:

This may well have been one photograph in a series to illustrate the efficiency of the Great Western Railway in transporting consignments of delicate blooms from the extreme south-west of the United Kingdom, the Isles of Scilly, to mainland markets. There is a twin photograph to this, possibly part of the same picture. It shows William Trevillick standing to the right in a dark suit and stove hat. The bulbs are planted in beds rather than in rows. Note the windbreak and planting on the edge of the field.
