|Dates: ||1822 - 1867|
Goble took an early interest in photography and in 1850 delivered two lectures on the “Science of the Sunbeam” before the Hastings Mechanics’ Institution, illustrating these with his own examples of the Talbotype and the daguerreotype. While he did not participate in any national exhibitions, around 1857 Goble established a photographic studio in Worthing, advertising not only the common collodion portrait, but Talbotype and vignette portraits as well. To date, no examples of Goble’s work have come to light.
