The association has collected together a considerable number of old photographs and other memorabilia. In particular a large collection of team and class photographs, some still mounted an annual display boards, others loose in a box, which were found at Humphry Davy School, were donated to the association by John Pollard, a deputy head at the school  at the time and himself an Old Penwithian. These have all been scanned to digital format. We also have an album of photographs that was the personal property of former headmaster Mr. Rising. This was kindly donated to the association shortly after his death by his widow Tean Rising. The contents of this album have also been scanned. In an attempt to reach a wider audience our complete collection of images was uploaded to the “Picture Penzance” website. The images are contained in over forty albums, including one for each year 1945 to 1980 inclusive, and other albums titled “Staff”, “Buildings” and “Reunions”. The Picture Penzance website has recently been rebuilt and our collection of images can be found by selecting the link below.  It is once again possible to add missing names by posting a comment on the image in our gallery but you will need to register with “Picture Penzance” and use your user name and password to log in before you can post comments.  If you were a registered member of the old site then your user name and password will still work.  If you have any information about existing photographs in our collection please register with and/or log in to “Picture Penzance”.  Alternatively, if you do not wish to register with “Picture Penzance”, request a user name and password from the Old Penwithians website manager [see “Contact Us” page], log in as a user of this site, and post the new names by leaving a comment in the box below .

We are still keen to add to the collection and welcome donations of original photographs, or scans of photographs. If you have photographs that you would like to add to our collection please see the “Contact Us” page.

  • With the exception of the annual sets of team and group photographs still mounted on display boards all of the original photographs in the Old Penwithians Archive have been donated to the Morrab Library Photographic Archive. Here they have been re-scanned at very high resolution and will be placed in archive quality storage. This will ensure the protection of the originals from damage and further deterioration. These photographs are available in the Old Penwithians Association collection on the Photgraphic Archive page of the Morrab Library website at http://morrablibrary.org.uk/photo-archive/
