Fowey, Cornwall. Around 1925

Church seen from street above. Glass lantern slide from a lecture, entitled Some Historic Cornish Beauty Spots, given by Cornishman and amateur photographer, Major Arthur William Gill, in around 1925. He was well known in Cornwall and elsewhere during the 1920s and 1930s for his presentations of stills and cine film to many groups including The Royal Institution of Cornwall, Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society and the London Cornish Society. The quarter plate slides which he took prolifically with his ordinary camera are, in many cases, colour. These were painted by his own hand to great effect

Author Judith Cook, Fowey, Cornwall. October 1993

Local author, Judith Cook, launches her new book To Brave Every Danger at the Fowey Hotel. The book is an account of eighteenth century highway woman and convicted felon, Mary Bryant (born in Fowey in 1765), who was transported to Botany Bay, Australia, and escaped with her convict husband, children and other convicts in an open boat. They rowed for 66 days and arrived in Dutch West Timor. They were sent back to England in 1792, where they stood trial. Mary was pardoned having served the full sentence, went back to Cornwall and died after 1794. Judith Cook was a prolific author whose previous work included books on Shakespeare and the adaptation of two Daphne du Maurier books for the stage. Judith was born in 1933 and died in 2004.
