Beaford Old Archive

As well as building his own “endless tapestry” of rural north Devon life from 1972-1989, James Ravilious also initiated a project to collect older images of the same area. Inspired by a local Women’s Institute meeting exhibiting members’ photograph collections, James began to ask his subjects whether they themselves had any old photographs of the area which they might like to have included in the Beaford Archive. He collected these images by rephotographing them, working closely with his colleague George Tucker to build what they called the “Old Archive”. Documentation relied upon the memories of those supplying the images; their recollections were carefully recorded, but often partial. Additional images were accessioned by successive Beaford archivists, who also curated Old Archive exhibitions aimed at collecting the hidden histories in the images. The Old Archive now contains over 7,000 images, most of which date from 1880-1930 and predate the arrival of the Brownie camera in the region.
