The focus for the current window display is the history of Photography which has been kindly sponsored by Celia Jones.

We are indebted to the SW Photography School, Peter Bland, Chris Mansfield & Peter Best for the loan of some very interesting photographic items.

Lostwithiel Museum holds a unique collection of old photographs which record its fascinating evolution. Historic images help us to appreciate how the character of Lostwithiel has developed over the last 160 years or so. Lostwithiel was fortunate to benefit from the  well-known Francis Frith & Co which produced picture postcards during the massive postcard boom of the Edwardian era.
