Eva Chichester was a Sunday school teacher and keen amateur photographer who lived in Newcastle, County Down. Eva was born in 1872 and died in 1955. She travelled widely in the British Isles and Europe and photographed and wrote about her experiences.  In the archive, we have a large collection of interesting photographs from Ireland and Europe, notebooks, correspondence and travel journals. The travel journals offer some candid views and opinions of Europe and Europeans as experienced by Eva and the photograph albums offer some compelling  pictures of everyday life and landscape between 1890-1910
