The six images form part of a collection of more than 600 glass plate negatives taken by Sandown photographer, James Dore
Can you identify any of the locations in these photographs? If so, then the Isle of Wight Heritage Service would like to hear from you.
The six images form part of a collection of more than 600 glass plate negatives taken by Sandown photographer, James Dore (1854-1925), that provide a vivid record of Island life at the turn of the 20th century.
While many of the places featured in Dore’s work are known, the locations in these six photographs remain a mystery.
Richard Smout, Isle of Wight Heritage service manager, said: “It is possible that one or more of these pictures was not taken on the Isle of Wight.
“However, there may be a few clues in some of the photographs, and in all cases it is worth remembering that Dore was Sandown-based.
“He took pictures across the Island but there is likely to be an emphasis on communities in the south-east corner.”
