This week we brought you topics like the River Tamar, entertainment and art, and we’ve looked at the construction and purpose of Plymouth’s lighthouses and moments of history from The Hoe.
In case you haven’t seen them, here are three highlights:
The Jack Pickup exhibition at Plymouth Unitarian Church was due to be a highlight of our real-life festival, but our online version did it proud, including the influences for Pickup’s mural as well as works that show the city’s beauty.
On Tuesday, the National Marine Biological Library treated us to a virtual tour of their own, this time looking at the incredible artefacts held within its walls.
Lots of people got in touch on social media to say that they enjoyed this article on Smeaton’s Tower, which threw a few surprising tidbits from its past to light.
This weekend we’ll be looking at Plymouth’s long relationship with the sea that borders it, and next week we’ll be looking at tourism, conflict and leisure in the city, and further afield to Dartmoor. Don’t forget to test your knowledge with this week’s quiz, and keep sending us your #MyPlymouthHistory pictures via Facebook and Twitter, and have a wonderful weekend.
