Seated for dinner, from left to right: unknown man; possibly Mrs Beard; possibly Spencer Howlett President of the Federation of Old Cornwall Societies; Jessica Mann (1937-2018), novelist and broadcaster, also known by her married name Jessica Thomas (Jessica was married to Charles Thomas, archaeologist, historian and Director of the Institute of Cornish Studies, Camborne); possibly Stuart Beard, Chairman of Newquay Old Cornwall Society; Charles Woolf, photographer and President of Newquay Old Cornwall Society in 1977. There is also an unidentified woman in the foreground, mostly out of frame. 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.
