Massey sent-in a watercolour, The Missing Boats, from Penryn to RI (1893), which suggests a local connection.
A recent correspondent (2014) sent a message using the contact form at http://cornwallartists.org/contact.
Frederick Massey worked for Harrisons the well-known photographers in
Falmouth. He painted several watercolours of the Cutty Sark at anchor in
Falmouth harbour around 1920. I own two such paintings. He also painted in
oils 'Mackerel Fishing off Falmouth' being one. I own another, which is
unsigned, of two men in a rowing boat off The Manacles.
