A NEW Sankey Photography Exhibition from Signal Film and Media is opening at Barrow’s Dock Museum.

The Sankey Family Photographic Collection has over 15,000 glass plate negatives and postcards of Barrow and the north-west.

The exhibition, launching on October 15, brings together over 100 photographs that have been recently digitised and catalogued as part of the National Lottery Heritage-funded Seeing the North with Sankey Project.

Alongside historic images, new artwork by students at local primary schools and the South Cumbria Pupil referral unit will be displayed. Activity packs for children and a collage table for all will be in place during the exhibition and people are invited to create new artworks to add to a growing display over the three months the exhibition will be on show.

On October 16 there will be family friendly activities including collage and cyanotype workshops from 11pm - 3pm.

All activities and entry to the museum are free.

The exhibition will be open to the public every Wednesday-Sunday 11am - 4pm until January 9, 2022.
