EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from the Royal Cornwall Museum takes us back in time to around 1920, capturing a mesmerizing view of Levant Mine in St Just, Penwith, Cornwall. The image showcases the impressive retaining wall that stands proudly in front of the pumping engine house on the left and the winding engine house on the right. The photographer remains unknown, but their skill is evident as they expertly frame this scene with meticulous attention to detail. The composition draws our eyes upward towards the towering cliff and highlights the sheer magnitude of these mining structures against nature's backdrop. Notably, we can observe that the stack has been cut down, indicating that this photograph was likely taken during or after 1920. This alteration adds an intriguing layer of historical context to this image. As we delve into Cornish history through this photograph, it becomes apparent that mining played a significant role in shaping both industry and community within this region. The surface features depicted here are a testament to Cornwall's rich mining heritage. This print serves as a valuable visual record for future generations to appreciate and understand how these structures once stood tall amidst Cornwall's rugged landscape.
