EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from the early 1900s showcases an ancient stone road sign found in Lanivet, Cornwall. The weathered stone way marker stands as a testament to the rich history and cultural heritage of this enchanting region. With the words "vet" and "LANI" engraved below, it serves as a symbolic guide for travelers navigating their way through these picturesque landscapes. What makes this particular stone marker truly intriguing is the presence of a hand symbol etched alongside the text. This enigmatic emblem adds an air of mystery to its purpose, leaving us pondering its significance within Cornish folklore or religious traditions. The photographer behind this remarkable image is none other than Canon Henry Holroyd Mills, who held the esteemed position of Clergyman at St Stephen in Brannel during that era. His keen eye for capturing moments frozen in time allows us to appreciate not only the physical beauty of Cornwall but also its historical importance. As we gaze upon this photo print, we are transported back in time, imagining countless generations passing by this very spot on their journeys across these ancient lands. It reminds us that even amidst modernity's rapid progress, there are still remnants of our past waiting to be discovered and cherished.
