Tregony History

Old photographs and postcards bring to reality the people, places and events of bygone times. Sometimes the vision captured on camera is the only surviving evidence left for the modern generation to see what things were really like. It even aids the people who did know, but have forgotten. Tregony was fortunate to have had a professional photographer, Mr Joseph Greet who worked from about 1890 up until 1920 covering the local area in his horse and trap. Luckily, many of his prints still survive and I have managed to copy a good number of them.

Other photographers have also made limited studies of the Village especially between the 1940 and 1970ís. I have been collecting and copying these as well as every day snapshots taken by the locals. Many of them have a message to tell, even about modern day living.
