Glyn Richards Collection (160 Items)
These photographs are from Glyn's personal collection, taken during a 36-year career with Cornwall's fishery protection agency as the Engineer/Fishery Officer. Many of the pictures within this collection were taken while aboard the patrol boats Palores, Verifier, and Saint Piran, as they went about their business patrolling the seas around Cornwall's beautiful coast.
Glyn Richards joined the Cornwall Sea Fisheries Protection Service as the Engineer/Fishery Officer where he was to spend the next 36 years patrolling the coasts of Cornwall from their base in Newlyn. Glyn's interest in photography grew as time went by. The patrol boats were a unique platform, the subjects endless with constantly changing scenes, cliff scenery, wildlife, working fishermen, their vessels and the many types of ships that passed them by.
These photographs were digitised as part of the MemoryFish project.
