A Yorkshireman's Travels

A Yorkshireman's Travels

Details

Join our eccentric intrepid traveller, Enoch Pendergast, on his World Adventure. Delve into the Victorian and Edwardian fascination with exploration and travel through images of faraway places and exotic objects. See images from the Bradford Scientific Association lantern slide collection and objects from our World Cultures collection, sent back to the UK by Bradford explorers.

The exhibition looks at Keighley and Bradford’s international role in the world and the influence of World Cultures on the area and its citizens. Bradford’s scientific societies aimed to inform and educate Bradford’s citizens about the world, through lectures and lantern slide shows, in a time when most people could not travel outside of the UK.

Come along and enjoy the show. It’ll be a ripping yarn!
