A small team of the Hoylake Lifeboat Museum has a task to photograph exhibits for curatorial and research purposes. The volunteer team writes:
We are also compiling, for the benefit of visitors to our Museum and website, a slideshow of images of Hoylake, its fisherfolk and holiday-makers, the Lighthouses, the sea-front buildings and their developments to provide our main exhibits, the ex-RNLI Lifeboats Chapman and Thomas Corbett, with historical and contextual background.
We think it important that visitors should leave not only with personal views and, possibly, memories of what it is like to be a lifeboat crew member but to have some feeling for what part our two boats played in the history of Hoylake and the effects that Hoylake had upon our two boats and their brave crews.
Do any members of Hoylake Junction have any images that we may include in our collection? Proper acknowledgement will be given. Images that appear on our website will be reproduced at a size and resolution to enable their proper viewing but not copying. It is, of course, important that the images sent to us should be of the highest quality possible as it is sometimes impossible to make improvements for the purposes of screen viewing at any resolution.
If any members of Hoylake Junction have any images that they would care to let us have for viewing, contact us via our website. Furthermore, any relevant objects that your members might care to loan us for display or imaging and return would be appreciated and acknowledged.
So, can you help? If so, you can contact via the new Hoylake Lifeboat Museum website.
