Monthly talk February 2019 with Chris Nicholls and Judith Read

What a pantomime with the computers wishing not to communicate with each other? And the sound system? Well!!

Our double act of Chris Nicholls and Judith Read joined in with the fun until computers agreed to work together

James Charles Dinham and Isabella Cowan were the subjects for this evening.

James Dinham was a noted Torquay photographer who captured ordinary people going about their lives in the late 19th and early 20th century.

Isabella Cowan was a Canadian visitor in 1895, and we heard readings from her, “Aunt Belle’s Diaries” to complement the photographs. Her observations of Torquay at the time were quite contemporary.

A very enjoyable evening. Thank you Chris Nicholls and Judith Read
