Today Azook are pleased to announce the relaunch of cornishmemory.com, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund as the Re:collect project comes to an end.

The new website features nearly 31,500 historic photos, films and audio recordings covering the whole of Cornwall and Cornish connections abroad. Contributed by museums, libraries, archives, and private collectors, these items were digitised by a team of over 100 volunteers who have helped us over the last three years. Many of the films and photos have never been publicly available until now.

Other funded projects also contributed photos to cornishmemory.com such as MemoryFish, digitising over 1,200 photos covering the changes of fishing in Cornwall throughout the 20th century.

It doesn’t stop here. We will be continually improving cornishmemory.com, its  item descriptions, and adding extra items as funding permits.

Follow cornishmemory.com on Twitter to keep up with the latest updates and some of our favourite items.
