The photographs of Cavendish
At long last, the task of putting the collection of postcards and photographs of Cavendish has been completed, though we continue to work on getting everything accurately labelled. There are now 154 photographs of Cavendish on the site, dating from around 1860.
The task has proven to be enormous, but with the kind help of Terry Baxter, Tom Hastie, Stan Thompson and Jeremy Eldridge, we've managed to gather all the best photos of Cavendish together, and clean them up ready for viewing
The captioning is going to take a very long time as it is often hard work identifying the people in the photographs.
A number of entirely forgotten photos came to light during the search. My favourite is the picture of the little boy in a sailor-suit and sun-hat fishing from the sluice-gates of Paddock (Cavendish) Mill. The photo was originally so faded as to be almost indecypherable, a tiny photo pasted into an old scrap-book.
