Photo Collection of AG Linney

Albert Gravely Linney (1873–1936) was a writer and journalist and a keen amateur photographer.  Quote from the Museum of London website -  ‘In 1925 he became the first editor of the new Port of London Authority Monthly Magazine and it was in this capacity that he was able to fully explore the working Thames and its riverbanks’.

During his time roaming the Thames he took many photographs of Canvey Island. We have been fortunate to have been given permission to publish those photos under licence from the Museum of London.
