Exhibition Lilian Mason, Photographer at The Rose Street Cottage of Curiosities


Lilian was an apprentice at age 17 to the well-known Sheppey photographer John Griffiths in the early part of the 20th century.  She went on to become very successful in her own right through both her portrait work and postcard scenes of Sheppey.  Rose Street Cottage has a collection of over 300 of her photographs that are evocative of the period between the wars, featuring numerous portraits as well as local drama productions. If you have family that were on Sheppey during this period there is a chance that they feature among our wonderful collection and you could help increase our understanding of Lilian’s work. Come and have a look – the pictures are available to view in the Gallery and in our album display and we shall be showing them on a projector so that you can see them in great detail.

Address: 10 Rose St Sheerness Isle of Sheppey ME12 1AJ
