Exhibition showcasing Perranuthnoe through the ages is well attended
NEARLY 100 people turned out to preview a photography display in Perranuthnoe which showcased the village through the ages.
Perranuthnoe Then and Now, an exhibition created by Photography@Perranuthnoe, gave guests the chance to see photographs of the village and surrounding area dating back as far as the late nineteenth century, alongside new images taken by club members which recreate the same scenes as they are today.
Many of those attending were able to fill in gaps in the collective memory by giving the names of villagers captured in the images and the dates the old photographs were taken.
Club chairman, Martin Holland, said: “'It was a great evening. Very successful, more than we could have hoped. The exhibits have stirred many memories and brought people who lived in the village years ago closer to us here in 2013.”

A scrapbook put together by club member, Maureen Gibson, contained a large number of additional historic photographs of the village, with space for anyone to add the names of people in the photographs or what the occasion was.
When the exhibition is taken down later this year, the scrapbook will be kept at the St Hilary Heritage Centre.
A donation of £200 by Photography@Perranuthnoe to Little Harbour Childrens’ Hospice has been made from money raised by the preview evening.
The exhibition can be viewed between 10am and 12pm on Sundays and Thursdays at the Church Room, Perranuthnoe. A selection of the exhibits is also on display at The Victoria Inn.
