Postcards from a Dorset Collection


Each month local historian Barry Cuff shares a selection of rarely-before seen images from his unique archive (more on his collection here).
This month Barry has picked Shaftesbury photographer Albert Tyler.

Still easily recognisable, this postcard of Bell Street in Shaftesbury was posted to Verwood in November 1908
Ashmore – in August 1911 this postcard was sent to Swansea
This postcard of the United Temperance Fete at Cann was sent in September 1910. Taken in what was Cannfield Park, now Cannfield Farm, beside the B3081.
This image of Enmore Green was posted in October 1907 to Corton Denham

‘Albert Edward Tyler, photographer published postcards of Shaftesbury and surrounding villages. He moved to Shaftesbury in 1901. His studio was in Salisbury Street. He died in 1919 at the age of 45.’
