At the Dock Museum, Barrow-in-Furness LA14 2PW. West Coast Photo showcases life on the west coast, past and present, from Barrow to Maryport and from the traditional to the unique; from the area’s stunning landscape and wildlife, to women in industry and the area’s global industrial links; childhood and recreation to protest and politics. Some of the striking snapshots include giant turtles washed up on the beach, ‘screen girls’ working their last shift in the west Cumbrian collieries, Daniel Meadow’s iconic Barrow portraits from the 70s and gigantic pinhole photographs using Whitehaven Lighthouse as a camera.
