Monthly meeting – John Strike, “The Magic Lantern Man”

January 8, 2019 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm Europe/London Timezone
Miners and Mechanics Institute

John Strike may be known to many of you for his fascinating historical talks about Cornwall, illustrated by a Magic Lantern using original glass plate slides. On this occasion he will be talking about Wrecks on the South Cornish coast, and on Old Porthleven. Whilst he will be discussing many of the photographic features of his slides, the talk will undoubtedly be of general interest to non-photographers, so for this meeting we will welcome accompanied spouses and partners for the grand fee of £1.50.

Should time allow, we will finish the meeting by showing images of present day Porthleven gathered by members on the pre-Christmas Field Trip.
