George Blyth: postman-photographer

Breamish Valley photographer

George Blyth was an enthusiastic photographer. He took numerous photographs of people, places and events in the Breamish Valley.

Sixty-two images held in the newly-formed and growing Breamish Valley Photographic Collection are credited to him. See for example:

Local postie

From about 1901-1939, George was the local postman, delivering to the villages along the Breamish Valley. It’s easy to imagine that this is how he gained access to the community and was able to document the goings on in the area.

Photos to be added

George has some wonderful photographs that we’re in the process of adding to the Breamish Valley Photographic Collection.
