AN ONLINE talk exploring the Sankey Photography Collection will go ahead next week.

With Signal Film and Media's 'Seeing the North with Sankey Project' coming to an end, they are offering a further online talk on January 6, where local historian Geoff Holme will give a personal insight into the collection.

Explore the wonderful heritage photography exhibition, curated by Volunteers and Signal Staff, sharing the history of Barrow and Cumbria through the eyes of the Sankey Family photographers.

Geoff is a lifelong railway enthusiast with a specialist knowledge in the Furness Railway and enjoys learning about all things Furness. He has had an interest in the Sankey collection since attending a talk given in late 1971 at the Lakeside Railway Society using images from the Sankey collection and this began a long term admiration for the high quality images from this amazing collection.
