Cornwall Heritage Trust ran another history cafe on 17th June at the Portbyhan Hotel, Looe. The Azook team was there to support with a cornishmemory.com stand.

The history cafe talk was given by Dr Lamorna Spry; it was based around that fascinating experience and travels of her grandfather who had left Cornwall to travel the world.

The Azook team put together a slide show of show 120 images of Looe from the past 150 years; this generated a great deal interest from those at the history cafe – mostly members of the Looe Old Cornwall Society. And of course, also on show was the cornishmemory.com website.
