About fifty Volunteers recently enjoyed Alan Clarke’s ‘Salisbury Miscellany’ – a look at some of the museum’s photographic collection, one of our regular Collections in Focus talks.
Here are some of the photos he showed us, and a few which we didn’t see:
Alan started with this one of himself – the horse is about to be decapitated! Notice Alan’s expression!!
A favourite – the earliest known photo of Salisbury
Repairs to the spire, early 1950s. Where are the hard hats, hi-viz jackets, harnesses?
An early photo of Stonehenge, with repairs to make….
Alan pointed out that, over the centuries, pretty much every stone must have had to be re-erected at some time.
How did they move those stones in the past? Interesting reconstruction here..
There have been endless efforts to work out how it was all done. This one is from the 1970s.
Thank you Alan!
