Description

A photograph titled 'The Wayfarer', taken by Colonel Joseph Gale (c 1835-1906) in 1885. A girl carries a jug of refreshments down her cottage steps to an old traveller, who carries with him his bundle of possessions wrapped in hessian and a basket. This photograph was exhibited at the Photographic Society of Great Britain in 1885, but could not win Gale a medal, despite high praise - he was also one of the judges. Joseph Gale specialised in naturalistic photographs of rural life and figures in landscapes. He was one of the first members of the Linked Ring Brotherhood and was also a member of the Royal Photographic Society.
