Thomas Herbert Victor (1894-1980) was a painter in watercolour of landscapes and harbours. Having shown exceptional artistic promise at school, on leaving, Victor went to art school in Penzance and was granted a scholarship from the first term there. Further scholarships were offered to him to study at the Slade School and other famous establishments. He would not leave Mousehole, however, and never travelled further than Truro during his lifetime. Nevertheless, his artistic abilities flourished and his watercolour paintings of the harbours and streets of all the local fishing villages are, apart from their artistic merit, of great historic value as a record of Mousehole, Newlyn, St Ives, and the Lizard Peninsula as they were a hundred years ago. He also painted views of Clovelly. Many of his works were produced for the Morrab Gallery in Penzance. He also produced works under the pseudonym W. Sands. During the 1960s he had a shop in Mousehole.
