I went to the Porthcurno Museum today to continue searching for information about the subjects that interest me., bearing in mind that there are only a few months left before the citizens’ curator scheme ends and as yet I haven’t decided what I’ll make a short video presentation about.
I hadn’t got very far in trying to discover something about illnesses. Then I mentioned that I’d noticed in the 1950 Zodiac there seemed to be numerous early deaths and I wondered if it was possible to find out what the cause of death might be, Alan found some information about those that worked in cable and wireless. Unfortunately, this also came to a dead end.
What I’d really like to to do is something about Porthcurno.
There is very little info about the social life in Porthcurno.
I decide I must search online and at home to find a few snippets. I’m waiting for the inspiration to hit me.
Also was taken to see the object store: a huge room with many shelves full of out of date equipment.
Maybe photos of women as portrayed in the Zodiac magazine over several decades would be a good visual project.
