Alan Dawber, BHSP Porto organiser, writes:
I am pleased to announce the next meeting at
The talk will be on Thursday 15th June at 6.15pm
. Alan Dawber, Richard Delaforce and Lynne Fry will give a joint illustrated talk on The Life and Times of Baron Joseph James Forrester
. Much research still needs to be done, and I am indebted to the administrators of the Factory House for allowing me to make two visits. Lynne Fry will be concentrating on Forrester's early life in Hull before coming to Porto in 1831. Richard will talk about his father's excellent eponymous book. I shall dwell on Forrester's life here in Portugal, remarkable man that he was.
