Lunchtime chat: How Our Ancestors Saw The World


Mick Henry is in our virtual SoG common room ready for a chat. So grab a sandwich and a cup of tea and sit down with us. 

Members! As a benefit of membership, there no charge but you must book your place in our members area

Our lunchtime chats are friendly and relaxed. Mick tells us about villages depicted in early colour prints published by Abraham Le Blond. He used the work of Anthony John Puller to produce a series of affordable colour prints in oval shape in the 1850’s depicting village scenes like The Peddler, Soldiers Return, The Image Boy, Snowballing etc, and they were one of the first colour prints which anyone could afford using  a process devised by George Baxter.

Then it’s your turn to talk. Take part in a discussion about the images your ancestors saw. Come prepared to tell us about paintings, photographs and scenes you know your ancestors viewed. 

A 90-minute  social with Mick Henry.  As a benefit of membership, there no charge but you must book your place.
