“A Talk through time” was a pictorial exploration of the West Cumbria, split in two segments. The first focused on the history of Whitehaven over the last 100 years, with particular emphasis on the part played by the harbour in the industrial and social development of the town. The second half covered a wider geographical area and looked at a range of industry including mining, farming and the more recent nuclear developments.
The speakers were Gerard Richardson and Ivor Nicholas who have collaborated on four books comprising decades of images taken by Ivor Nicholas during his career as a photographic journalist in the area.
