Celebrating Sunderland-born chemist and inventor Joseph Swan.

Come along to this public talk to celebrate Sunderland-born chemist and inventor Joseph Swan, with photographic historian Dr Carol McKay and photographic artist Dr Liza Dracup.

Most people know Joseph Swan as the inventor of the incandescent light bulb, but few know he was also a photographic pioneer, an entrepreneur and businessman, with connections far and wide.
