History Brannon Family Engravers

1868 Alum Bay

REF NR: 1868

The Print

This engraving shows a nice, sedate scene of Alum Bay in the foreground with the new Needles Lighthouse built in 1868/9 on the far right. On close examination one can see that the 1858 engraving is probably the same as the 1840 engraving with the lighthouse, except for minor possible alterations to the cliff face added; a 19th century spot the difference!

 

The Brannons

George had four children, Alfred and Philip followed their father into the engraving business and were very successful in their own right. They produced not only engravings of the island but of other local towns and cities including Southampton.
