Using linearly-polarized laser-Compton scattering $$gamma$$-rays, partial E1 and M1 photoneutron cross sections along with total cross sections were determined for $$^{207,208}$$Pb at four energies near threshold by measuring anisotropies in photoneutron emission. Separately, total photoneutron cross sections were measured for $$^{207,208}$$Pb with a high-efficiency 4$$pi$$ neutron detector. The partial cross section measurement provides direct evidence for the presence of pygmy dipole resonance (PDR) in $$^{207,208}$$Pb near the neutron threshold. The strength of PDR amounts to 0.32% - 0.42% of the Thomas-Reiche-Kuhn sum rule. Several $$mu$$$$_N^{2}$$ units of B(M1)$$uparrow$$ strength were observed in $$^{207,208}$$Pb just above neutron threshold, which correspond to M1 cross sections less than 10% of the total photoneutron cross sections.
