Old Looe Photographs
Looe Museum is very proud of its collection of images handed down by the Raddy family, photographers in the town since the end of the 1800’s. Over the years we have been given sporadic access to the collection and also have been able to collect postcards issued by the family busines over the years. But it was only recently that we were presented with over 600 negatives, slides and prints by Colin Raddy, the fourth generation of the family to run the shop in Fore St.
These have now been professionally scanned and early viewings show wonderful detail and plenty of things we have not seen on images before.
In October 2021 you will have the chance to see some of these images close up with an exhibition in the museum.
Museum open 11.00 -16.00 each day
Disabled access every day to lower floor (Upper floor is sadly up steps, it's a 16th C building!)
