Isle of Wight libraries to host photo exhibitions

A new range of photographic exhibitions are set to be hosted by libraries all over the Isle of Wight.

Tourists on their Isle of Wight holidays are to be given the chance to check out historic shipwreck photos by James Dore during their breaks on the island.

Newport and Ryde libraries have dozens of pictures, including one of a circus elephant on a beach, while the facility at Ventnor will be showcasing a slideshow of exhibits recovered from a shipwreck, like a pewter tankard, a wooden comb and a stone cannon ball.

More than 70 shipwreck photographs taken from around the Isle of Wight will go on display at Ventnor and Cowes libraries for the event.

Those interested in seeing more photographic exhibitions during their time on the island could head to Dimbola Lodge, which is the home of the Julia Margaret Cameron Trust and hosts a museum dedicated the life and times of the snapper.
