Join local historians and writers Geoff Burch and David Rose when they give their illustrated talk Dave Salmon A Man And His Camera, this time online via Zoom on Monday, March 29, at 7.30pm.

Guildfordian Dave Salmon.

This popular talk on the life and photographs taken by the late David Salmon, a real Guildford character, has been updated with additional photos he took.

Dave, who was a familiar face in Guildford who always had his camera with him, took thousands of pictures of Guildford’s changing street scenes, events, railways, buses, aircraft, Guildford City FC and more.

From his days when he started as an engine cleaner at Guildford, his National Service days in the RAF, working painting signs and lines in the roads around Guildford, and his amazing pictures of the changing scenes in Guildford over several decades, all this and more feature in Geoff and David’s illustrated talk.

When Dave died in 2015, Geoff Burch became the custodian of Dave’s vast collection of photographs, some already having been published in the second and fourth books in Geoff’s Rambling Railwayman series.

Geoff has spent many hours scanning and digitally restoring and enhancing hundreds of Dave’s photographic 35mm slides and negatives and medium format negatives.

For what promises to be a great evening’s entertainment, to join the talk is just £5.

To book now, send an email to David Rose at writing ‘Dave Salmon talk’ in the subject box.

You will receive a reply with details how to pay (bank transfer or cheque). Once payment has been received you will receive an email back with the login details to the Zoom talk.

Geoff Burch and David Rose have published two double DVDs of Dave’s photos. The first focusing on his railway photography and the second of his Guildford photos, plus a bonus section on aircraft.

If you attend the Zoom talk and would then like to buy either of the DVDs at the price of £14.95 each, £3 from each will be donated to the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice in Farnham.
