PUPILS from Tickenham studied cameras which were used more than 100 years ago.

Mr Cooksley and Mr Knowles, who was a professional photographer to celebrities during his career, took along an assortment of cameras he used over the years.

The children from Tickenham Primary School were also able to take their own photos and sketched a Victorian camera.
