Newquay Old Cornwall Society / Federation of Old Cornwall Societies dinner, Newquay, Cornwall. 1978 or possibly 1977

Charles Woolf (1907-1984), photographer and President of Newquay Old Cornwall Society in 1977, is pictured (left) shaking hands with a gentleman wearing a chain of office. The gentleman is perhaps Newquay Old Cornwall Societys chairman, Stuart Beard. The identity of the lady in the centre is unknown. The photograph was taken on the occasion of a society dinner. This may have been the annual dinner in 1978 or a dinner held following the Annual General Meeting in April 1978. Although the negatives are dated 1978, it has been suggested that the occasion may have been the official opening of the Gallery of Old Cornwall on 6th April 1977. Photographer: Charles Woolf / Joyce Greenham

EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph captures a momentous occasion in the history of the Newquay Old Cornwall Society. Taken by renowned photographer Charles Woolf, it showcases the society's dinner held in either 1977 or 1978, at an iconic location in Newquay, Cornwall. In this intriguing image, we see Charles Woolf himself on the left side of the frame, extending his hand for a handshake with a distinguished gentleman adorned with an impressive chain of office. This gentleman is believed to be Stuart Beard, chairman of the Newquay Old Cornwall Society at that time. Standing between them is an unidentified lady whose significance remains unknown. The exact purpose of this gathering has been subject to speculation. While some suggest it may have been associated with the annual dinner in 1978 or a post-Annual General Meeting event held in April that year, others propose that it could mark the official opening of the Gallery of Old Cornwall on April 6th, 1977. This evocative snapshot provides us with a glimpse into Cornish history and culture as well as showcasing notable individuals who played significant roles within their community. It serves as a testament to the importance placed on preserving and celebrating local heritage through meetings, dinners, and other commemorative events organized by societies like Newquay Old Cornwall Society. Preserved by Joyce Greenham alongside Charles Woolf's collection at Royal Cornwall Museum, this print offers valuable insights into important Cornish men and women while capturing moments filled with camarader
