EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from the Royal Cornwall Museum takes us back in time to the early 1900s, capturing a picturesque view of Looe, Cornwall. The image showcases a serene scene that encapsulates the essence of this charming coastal town. From high above West Looe, we are treated to an enchanting vista up the river that stretches beyond the railway station. The composition is beautifully framed by a magnificent Cornish bridge, standing as a testament to both engineering prowess and architectural elegance. Its sturdy stone arches gracefully span across the tranquil waters below, inviting our gaze further into this idyllic setting. Sailing boats dotting the river add life and movement to this snapshot of history frozen in time. Their billowing sails catch gentle breezes as they glide through these calm waters, creating an atmosphere of tranquility and adventure simultaneously. Although captured by an unknown photographer, their skillful eye has immortalized this moment for generations to come. This photograph serves as a window into a bygone era when life moved at its own unhurried pace and nature's beauty was cherished with every glance. As we admire this remarkable print from afar, it transports us back in time and allows us to appreciate Looe's rich heritage. It reminds us of how much has changed over the years while also reminding us of what remains timeless - Cornwall's breathtaking landscapes and its enduring connection with sailing traditions.
