The Barry Simpson Collection


A COLLECTION OF OLD PHOTOGRAPHS OF RESTRONGUET CREEK



It has only been possible to present these historic photographs of our surroundings through the generosity of other collectors and some of the families who originally possessed them in their albums.

I would like to express my gratitude to the following residents who allowed me to copy these photos (many of which are copies of copies... and have suffered in the course of these reproductions) and must confess that in most cases I am unaware of the original photographers.

Lucy Webber    Jean Lapham    Ralph Bird    Bob Acton    Charles Warren    Barbara Penberth    Jean Nunn    Steve Ivall    Peter George    Bill Marshall    Edna Nicholls    Nancy Hibbert    Jenny Burrows    Patrick Holt    Graham Crocker    Megan King    Diana Roberts   

I would also like to acknowledge the Cornwall Record Office, The Royal Institution of Cornwall, The Environment Agency, Carnon Downs Old Cornwall Society, Cornwall Centre of Local Studies, RNAS Culdrose and Alan Kittridge, author of 'Passenger Steamers of the River Fal' published by Twelveheads Press.
