Newquay Old Cornwall Society / Federation of Old Cornwall Societies dinner, Newquay, Cornwall. 1978 or possibly 1977

Charles Woolf (1907-1984), photographer and President of Newquay Old Cornwall Society in 1977, is pictured (left) shaking hands with a gentleman wearing a chain of office. The gentleman is perhaps Newquay Old Cornwall Society's chairman, Stuart Beard. The identity of the lady in the centre is unknown. The photograph was taken on the occasion of a society dinner. This may have been the annual dinner in 1978 or a dinner held following the Annual General Meeting in April 1978. Although the negatives are dated 1978, it has been suggested that the occasion may have been the official opening of the Gallery of Old Cornwall on 6th April 1977. Photographer: Charles Woolf / Joyce Greenham
