EDITORS COMMENTS
Step back in time and immerse yourself in the picturesque beauty of East Looe valley, Morval, Cornwall. This photo print, taken around 1890 by Surgeon Captain John Campbell, transports us to a serene moment captured along the riverbank. As we gaze upon this enchanting view, our eyes are drawn upstream towards Terras Bridge near Penarthtown. The composition is a perfect blend of nature's elements and man-made structures that harmoniously coexist within this idyllic landscape. To the left, the meandering river gracefully flows alongside a railway line that stands as a testament to progress and connectivity during that era. On the right side of the frame lies a tranquil canal adorned with lush vegetation—a gentle reminder of Cornwall's rich waterways. Campbell's keen eye for detail allows us to appreciate every nuance within this scene—the play of light on the water's surface, casting shimmering reflections; the intricate patterns formed by branches reaching towards each other across the canal; and perhaps even glimpses of wildlife hidden amidst nature's embrace. This print from Royal Cornwall Museum not only captures an exquisite moment frozen in time but also serves as a window into Cornwall's past—a testament to its enduring natural beauty and historical significance. Let it transport you to an era where simplicity reigned supreme and nature was revered as both muse and sanctuary.
