The People of Gibraltar
1931 - George Lewis Land - Photographer

I have been unable to trace the history of anybody called George Lewis Land either as a photographer or as a person. All I know is that during 1931 he or his company photographed  a series of classic views of Gibraltar. Those of the Rock taken from the western beaches of La  Línea are particularly charming as they include studies of local children in the foreground. The following are a selection of his photographs.
