Victorian travelling photographer’s studio up for auction

This marvellous mobile garden office used as a photographic studio and well over 100 years old is coming up for auction next month on August 5 at Charterhouse Auctions in Sherborne, Dorset.

The studio has been located on the Dorset coast at Swanage for many years and most recently in a field near Wareham. It was commissioned by the father and son photographers John and Walter Pouncy from Dorchester. They and subsequent professional photographers took innumerable photos in the studio of seaside holidaymakers visiting Swanage. It has previously had some restoration work done but needs additional conservation work.

It's expected to make £8,000-£12,000. 

Pictured below is a more recent shot of it in use as a photographer's studio, and below being pulled by horses further back in time.
