EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from around 1880 showcases the picturesque Guild Hall with the charming Fishermans Arms standing proudly opposite in East Looe, Cornwall. The historic significance of this image is further highlighted by the presence of a sign bearing the name of its long-standing landlord, W. Alford, who served between 1856 and 1888. In this enchanting scene, three small children can be seen basking in the moment as they occupy the foreground. Their innocent joy adds an endearing touch to an already mesmerizing composition. Meanwhile, just outside the Guild Hall, a patient donkey patiently waits alongside a traditional cart - perhaps ready to transport goods or provide leisurely rides for locals and visitors alike. The photographer behind this remarkable piece is none other than Surgeon Captain John Campbell. His keen eye for detail and ability to capture not only architectural beauty but also fleeting moments of everyday life make his work truly exceptional. Preserved within Royal Cornwall Museum's collection, this photograph serves as a window into East Looe's past - offering us a glimpse into its rich history and vibrant community spirit during that era. It reminds us of simpler times when landmarks like Guild Hall and Fishermans Arms held great importance in shaping local culture and identity
