Historic photographs and images of rural Isle of Wight life will go on display at the Museum of Island History in Newport in June.
To celebrate the new display, the museum will open free of charge between Tuesday June 6 and Saturday June 10 (10am – 1pm). There will also be special activities for families at the museum on Saturday June 10 (10am – 1pm), with a photo trail and mystery objects to identify.
The display at the Museum of Island History will include over 40 images from the Sandown photographer James Dore (1854 – 1925), focussing on rural life on the Isle of Wight. It will feature newly discovered photographs donated in 2021 including some new scenes that the Isle of Wight Council’s Heritage Service would like help identifying.
The display will be held in the front of house of the museum and will be available to view on Tuesdays & Thursdays (10am – 1pm) until October. It has been created by the Council’s Heritage Service with assistance from young volunteers.
