Some pics from Morrab Library

There’s some wonderful places across Cornwall which hold archive material.  Morrab Library in Penzance being one of them www.morrablibrary.org.uk/

I’ve been getting totally engrossed in old photographs as I start looking for images for the Tre Project publicity.  Its hypnotic looking at places I know well and seeing them transform into the past.  Why does the past through photos and film hold such a fascination for people?

Here are three wonderful photos taken in Cornwall which conjure up a feeling of home for me.

Thatched cottage in Sennen. 1930

Christmas Pudding. 1935

Sennen Beach Punch & Judy. 1960
