All the scrolling postcards above give you the facility to view with an ‘electronic magnifyer’ and discover for yourselves the hidden gems captured some years or so ago. Postcards are arranged as if you were walking around the village. Shere is know as one of the most photographed and prettiest villages in England. Nestled in the foot of the Surrey Downs and this seems to have been the case since photography began.
Photography has a long and distinguished history in Polperro, and we are fortunate to have rich collections of images of the village and its people dating from as early as the s. We owe these collections mainly to two men: Lewis Harding and Francis Frith. After his early life in France and Australia, Harding returned to his family home in in such a poor state as to be practically an invalid.
To his great good fortune Harding was nursed back to health by Dr Jonathon Couch using an early example of occupational therapy, which took two forms: first, Couch encouraged Harding to makea detailed and ground breaking study of a nearby colony of birds, the rooks of Trelawne, and to record their hour by hour activities in a diary. Second, shortly before Harding moved first to Talland and later to Polperro, Couch introduced him to the newly emerging art of photography.
Over the following 30 years Harding photographed the village, its surroundings, activities like fish trading above the harbour and perhaps most interestingly its people, both around the village and in the studio at his home in Osprey Cottage on Talland Hill.
