DONATING YOUR MEMORABILIA - lots of local information, collections and memorabilia will be 'lost' when an estate is passed from one generation to the next. How often do we hear of that 'suitcase of old photos' which was thrown out or rotted away in the attic? You can now ensure your collection of books or postcards etc, if not wanted by your successors, are passed into our archive for safe-keeping and for use by those researching local history. Click here to see HERITAGE DONATION FORM. Just complete and keep with YOUR estate documents.

In these pages, we hope to bring you various collections of images of the Rame Peninsula.

Some will be topographical in content, others will follow a theme - an activity, a profession, a group of snapshots which give some idea of 'how it was' in the times since around the middle of the 19th century when the photographer came to the south West for the first time.
