THE FASCINATING photography of the late Daphne Carter will be back on display at Ventnor Library.

In September, the Friends of Ventnor Library launched a project, Ventnor Remembered, to make Daphne's photos, that document life in Ventnor and the South Wight, available to all through a digital archive.

The collection comprises almost 50 albums, containing thousands of her photographs of the people, buildings and landscape in and around Ventnor taken between the 1980s and early 2000s.

The launch event gave people a chance to look through the photo albums and now the library is hosting the exhibition again.

The event is being held on Wednesday, January 30, from 6pm. All are welcome and tea and coffee will be available.

A spokesperson for Friends of Ventnor Library said: "Good progress is being made with the project, but the Friends would welcome more help.

"If you are interested, you can discuss this at the event, or visit or telephone the library on 852039, or e-mail"

The Ventnor Remembered project is supported by the Ventnor and District Local History Society and has been awarded a grant from 'Down to the Coast', a landscape partnership scheme supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The photographs are being made available online at and, once complete, the project will provide an invaluable record of the social history, local architecture and natural landscape of the Ventnor area.
