Many of you will remember Daphne Carter, who spent more than twenty years photographing Ventnor and its people, and donated 47 albums of her photographs to the Library.
Daphne was an active member of Friends of Ventnor Library and also the Ventnor and District Local History Society, who displayed her photographs in exhibitions in the Heritage Museum. Friends of Ventnor Library have now been awarded a grant to catalogue and scan Daphne’s photographs to preserve them and make them more widely available. The attached document describes the project, called ‘Ventnor Remembered’, in more detail.
We launched ‘Ventnor Remembered’ at an event in September and several people who could not attend have asked if this could be repeated. A second event will be held at the Library at 6pm on Wed January.
Please come along if you can and join us for a coffee. We will have some of the albums there for you to look through.
