THAT WAS THE WEST THAT WAS... In our continuing series looking at the Westcountry through archive photographs, this week’s collection focuses on gardening and horticulture. With the generous help of South West Image Bank and Cornwall Studies Library, That Was The West That Was is a weekly print and online pictorial feature. From community life to major events, farming to industry, sport to war, churches to festivals, the everyday to the dramatic... in fact everything that made the region tick. And we’d like you to share in the project by dusting off your old photograph albums. If you have a great picture from the region’s past and want to share it with readers, please either send it to That Was The West That Was, Western Morning News, Studio 5-11, Millbay Road, Plymouth PL1 3LF or email it to: sparker@westernmorningnews.co.uk
