NOVEMBER TALK: Focus on Harry Bray
SPEAKER: Helen Bray, photographer
November 5, 2019, 7.30pm
Reception Room, Huddersfield Town Hall
A visual treat for those interested in the history and changing face of Huddersfield and its villages, presented by award-winning portrait photographer Helen Bray.
She takes us on an evocative journey into the history, events and characters from the inter-war period seen through the lens of her grandfather, Harry Bray, the Huddersfield Examiner’s first photographer.
Harry became an apprentice at Bamforth’s, famed for its silent films and postcards, before opening his own studio, and during the 1930’s, working as a freelance photographer for the Examiner.
There will be a £4 entrance charge for non HCS members.
