Every Photo Tells a Story

© Jubilee Pool Stories / Amanda Lorens
This animation was produced as part of the Jubilee Pool Stories project by artist Amanda Lorens with children from St Mary's C of E School, Penzance, and their teacher Nicky Bonell. It weaves together archive and present-day photos with drawn animation and newly recorded oral history to tell an imaginative story based on real events and inspired by children’s book ‘Flotsam’ by David Wiesner. Many thanks to Evangeline (Joyce) Cooper, who we hear remembering the opening of Jubilee Pool in 1935, and to photographer Mike Newman and Penlee House Museum and Gallery.
