Early Films from St Ives Archive: Fishing & Tourism




Two events have been organised by The Borlase Smart John Wells Trust and St Ives Archive this month on Wednesday 16th July and Wednesday 23rd July at 7:00pm.

At the first event, entitled Early Films from St Ives Archive: Fishing & Tourism, several archival films will be shown but the highlight will be two short silent films made in the 1930s by the famous Barnes brothers, from St Ives, who recorded the fishing industry both in the town and in West Cornwall. Fisherman and net setter, Chris Care, will introduce these films and describe what is being portrayed and some of the people and boats that feature.
