Glyn and Alan have been toiling away to put together a fantastic exhibition to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the voyage of the Rosebud to Westminster in 1937.
The crew of the Rosebud carried a petition from the people of Newlyn Town, in an atempt to save fishermens’ cottages from wholesale demolition by the Penzance Council under their interpretation of the Housing Acts 1925 – 1935. You can find out a little more about this history here, but for a more insightful look, come and see the exhibition in the library, featuring photographs, a bit of the keel, and a model of the Rosebud.
The exhibition runs between 17th and 27th October in the Reading Room at the library.
We look forward to seeing you here!
