Cornish life as captured on camera and recorded on reel : Find photos, watch films, and listen to the stories of Cornwall's rich history from Victorian times to the present day

The Azook Community Interest Company is an organization dedicated to preserving the history and culture of Cornwall, England. One of their projects is, a website that hosts over 30,000 digitized photographs, postcards, and other items that highlight a variety of aspects of life in Cornwall over the past two centuries. This extensive collection can be browsed in a number of ways. Those familiar with Cornwall may want to browse items via the Map, where items are marked by pins. Alternatively, visitors can browse images by Collection, where items are arranged by photographer, historical organization, or theme. Collections include the Clive Carter Collection, which includes almost 2,000 images taken by photographer Clive Carter, who documented Cornish shipping and shipwrecks. Meanwhile, the Mac Waters Collection includes over 5,000 photographs collected by Waters, "a Cornishman who is imbued with ceaseless enthusiasm and energy for all things Cornish and the preservation of Cornish heritage." In addition, the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty collection features work by BBC's Planet Earth photographer, Ted Giffords, that document the gardens of the Tamar Valley region
