Sunset Series: Exploring the Sankey Collection

31 January, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Explore a fascinating archive of images from the Sankey Family Photography Collection with Liz Critchley from Signal Film & Media, Barrow.

The Sankeys were father and son duo Raymond and Edward Sankey, who documented life in Barrow and Cumbria for over 70 years. Starting in 1900, they captured the landscape, cultural changes, individuals, industry and tourism to name just a few.

In 2016, Signal Film & Media began the journey to re-house, catalogue and celebrate the incredible Sankey Family Photography Collection, an archive of over 15,000 images taken over a 70-year period and which documents huge changes in Cumbria & Lancashire’s history.

Join Liz Critchley, Adult Programme Manager at Signal Film & Media, Barrow, to explore this rich and fascinating collection of images.
