Snapshots of Cornish Maritime history Jan Pentreath Wednesday 12 June 2019

Jan Pentreath discusses the work of some of the excellent but little-known photographers who were working at the same time as the better-known 'Newlyn' and 'St Ives' artists.  

Professor Pentreath says: "Each image represents a snapshot of our rich local maritime history and reveals the lives of the men and women who lived and worked on our waters. This talk will look at a number of stunning images from an incredible archive of rare local images which span from the mid-nineteenth century up to the end of the 1930s, and the fascinating stories behind them."
