EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from the Royal Cornwall Museum takes us back in time to 1896, capturing a moment before the construction of Banjo Pier in Looe, Cornwall. The image showcases the site where this iconic pier would soon stand, revealing an untouched landscape that is now transformed by human intervention. In this snapshot of history, we see an unidentified paddle steamer gracefully moored alongside the existing pier. Its presence adds a touch of elegance and nostalgia to the scene. Surrounding it are several small rowing boats, possibly belonging to local fishermen or leisure seekers enjoying a tranquil day on the water. The photographer behind this remarkable image is Surgeon Captain John Campbell. Through his lens, he has immortalized a significant chapter in Cornish history and captured the essence of Victorian life along these shores. As we gaze upon this photograph print today, we cannot help but marvel at how much has changed over time. Banjo Pier now stands proudly as a symbol of Looe's maritime heritage and attracts visitors from far and wide. Yet here lies its humble beginnings - an undeveloped coastline awaiting transformation into an enduring landmark that would shape countless memories for generations to come. This print serves as both a testament to our past and an invitation to explore further into Cornwall's rich cultural tapestry.
