A new season begins at Petworth Cottage Museum on April 1 and to mark this, chairman of Petworth Society Peter Jerrome will show a series of slides of Petworth before 1914 at an open meeting on Thursday (March 13)
Entitled Mary Cummings’ Petworth, they paint a portrait of life in the town before the outbreak of the first world war.
There is no charge for admission and everyone is welcome.
The slide show takes place at the United Reformed Church Hall at 3pmm, on Thursday, March 13
The latest issue, number 155, of the quarterly Petworth Society Magazine is now available in the town.
The cover of the new issue features George Stevens, who lived in Northchapel and was a favourite subject of well-known Petworth photographer George Garland.
The magazine is issued free to members.
The latest edition contains a number of features and in his opening notes, Peter Jerrome says: “I am pleased to have ‘old Petworth traders’ making a reappearance.”
But he has included four nature studies by Dan Smith in the central photographs; “I thought they’d brighten up the rather glum winter weather.”
