Estuary River Rowing Sailing Victorian


EDITORS COMMENTS
This print transports us back to the enchanting coastal town of Looe in Cornwall, circa 1890. The image captures a picturesque scene at low tide, where a magnificent topsail schooner takes center stage amidst a collection of other boats. The seaward end of East Looe Quay becomes an intriguing playground for both sailing enthusiasts and rowing aficionados. The topsail schooner stands tall with its elegant masts reaching towards the sky, proudly displaying its billowing sails against the backdrop of a serene river estuary. Its sleek design hints at the remarkable craftsmanship that went into constructing such vessels during this Victorian era. Surrounding this majestic ship are smaller rowboats and sailboats, each with their own unique character and purpose. They dot the calm waters like scattered puzzle pieces waiting to be assembled by adventurous souls seeking maritime escapades or perhaps even fishing expeditions. Photographed by Surgeon Captain John Campbell, this snapshot freezes time, allowing us to marvel at the beauty and tranquility that once graced these historic shores. It serves as a reminder of Cornwall's rich nautical heritage and how vital rivers like Looe were for trade and transportation during this period. As we gaze upon this evocative image from Royal Cornwall Museum's collection, we cannot help but imagine ourselves stepping into the past - breathing in salty sea air while witnessing sailors skillfully navigating through these idyllic waters on their timeless voyages.
