Event Description

An exhibition of photographs drawn from Penlee House’s extensive collection, looking at some of the quirkier images taken by photographers from the dawn of photography through to the mid-20th century, including John Branwell, Gibson & Co, the Richards Brothers, Robert Preston and Harry Penhaul. Rather than the picturesque views depicted on postcards, the exhibition includes informal snapshots and unusual and bizarrely composed images to offer an uncommon overview of the local area.

An interesting range of the Museum's photographic collection can be seen here:

Curated by Jeremy Rice with assistance from the Penlee House photographic research group, led by John Wallis.
