Usually known as Broughton, A B Sealy was a shopkeeper & amateur photographer who was related to most early Bothwell families. His mother was Annie Allen & his father George Broughton Sealy. A B Sealy spent part of his early adult life in Victoria but returned to Bothwell to help manage the family store, on the corner of Alexander & Dalrymple Streets. For some time he lived in the house attached to the shop & part in the house next to it. This house, a late Victorian building, was once called Broughtonville but is now called Cashion Cottage. William Sealy also owned the Apsley Hotel & a shop there & some of the scenes are of that area. It is not known where Sealy learnt about photography
