Article: Photographers of St Helena since 1910

By Barbara George, published in the St Helena Herald 1st September 2006{2}

This information on the photographers comes mainly from Trevor Hearl, to whom St Helena owes a lot for his unstinting help and support in trying to help St Helena children have the best information to study the history of their island.

BURCHELL, William John - Around 1810: Drawings. Burchell came to St Helena at the age of 24 as ‘schoolmaster and acting botanist’ for the East India Company in the early 1800s. He made many drawings of the island at that time, and Kew hopes to put them together into a book soon.

GRAHAM, J. - 1830: Lithographs. These views, in an album in the museum, are taken from 22 Lithographic Plates and are very special.

MELLISS, G.W. - 1857: Illustrations drawn by George Melliss who was Head of PWD at the time, as was his son, J.C. Melliss later. George was a Royal Artillery Officer concerned with many structures on the island, especially the Ladder. They show in great detail what the island looked like then. Reproduced in a Booklet by Percy Teale called ‘A Brief History of the development of the Island of St Helena’, I have used a few of the Jamestown ones in earlier articles.

LILLEY, John Isaac, 1861-1863: Lilley published in ‘Jamestown a Descriptive List of Photographic Views of the Island of St Helena’, which he claimed were the first photos taken in St Helena on large 11inch x 9inch glass plates. His work shows buildings before the white ants destroyed them and the defences of the island, before modernisation of the 1870s. He was a soldier who worked as the Assistant Superintendent Storekeeper and Barrackmaster on St Helena. These are the only photos of St Helena in the 1860s in existence. There is a set in an album at the museum, sent out years ago by Trevor Hearl, who owns the glass slides which were photographed and the enlargements made by the Audio-Visual Aids Department at St. Paul’s College.

BROADWAY, W.O. - 1880s: Studio at Seales Corner near the Run.

INNES, A.L. - late 1800s early 1900s: Major postcard publisher. Had a Boer prisoner assistant who looked after his studio when he was away. Innes had a shop next to Jackson in 1902, which later became ‘Warrens’, later again Francis’s, then C&M’s, and recently returned to its name from early last century.

JACKSON, Tom - late 1800s early 1900s: Tom Jackson was a chemist who lived on St Helena from the 1890s till the 1930s. His shop used to be where Solomon’s DIY is now. He mixed and sold medicines here and also produced soft drinks. He was an enthusiastic photographer and took many photographs, some made into postcards. Many of these are in albums in the museum. His second wife, Emily (who was ‘Pop’ Warren’s sister), wrote the popular history book ‘St Helena’ in 1903. Trevor Hearl produced a printed list of the photos in this book for schools.

REV. AITKEN - late 1800s early 1900s: Baptist Minister, whose albums were donated to the Museum by his family, but many photographs in them are Jackson and Innes, so difficult to distinguish who took which, although Aitken was also an amateur photographer.

BATHURST, Lady Lilias - 1900-1902: Wife of the Commanding Officer of the Gloucester Regiment which was in charge of the Boer Prisoners at Deadwood Camp. Lady Bathurst used the latest Kodak technology. Basil George owns some of these photographs as some were of his family members who lived at Prosperous Bay Signal House at the time.

GOSSE - 1937: Taken from Gosse’s lantern slides for his lectures. Philip Gosse came here is 1937, and wrote the classic history book ‘St Helena 1502 - 1938’, reprinted by Trevor Hearl. A set of photocopies and a complete set of over 100 photographs was donated to PAS Library by Trevor Hearl in 1980s for school use. The glass slides were photographed and the enlargements made by the Audio-Visual Aids Department at St. Paul’s College.

BLAKESTON, Oswell - book 1957: Lots of interesting photos in here, including one of The Standard.

JOHNSTON, Bob - 1961/62: Bob came here with Charles Frater to make the 1961-2 video of the island. These photographs show how much the island has changed in 40 years. I understand that Charles Frater, who made the film with Bob, may be doing a book of the photographs.

CRALLAN, Hugh - 1974. The architect who wrote the first Report on Listed Buildings took many photographs of them at the time, and his Report says he left them with the Government. However these have unfortunately not been found so far.
