Leonard Skingle

Leonard Skingle was a St Helier shopkeeper, who also worked as a stevedore at St Helier Harbour and had a keen interest in photography

Leonard Skingle was one of the few local photographers to take pictures of German soldiers in the early days of the Occupation and these were published by his grandson Tim many years later. He and his wife Mabel had a shop in Kensington Place in the early 1930s and then moved to Ann Street. They finally sold this shop in 1948.

As well as pictures of the shops and harbour scenes, Tim Skingle also posted pictures of his father Roy, taken by his grandfather. Roy Skingle was deported to Biberach in 1942 and returned to Jersey after the war to work for Walls Ice Cream.
