Liskeard to Looe Canal, Morval, Cornwall. Around 1890

A view downstream of the footbridge over the Liskeard to Looe Canal, probably just south of Sandplace, with the estuary on the right. There is a lady with her dogs on the bridge. Carol Vivian suggests this image may be Newbridge between Terras and Sandplace. If so, the base of the bridge can still be seen from the road (note from 1999). Photographer: Surgeon Captain John Campbell

EDITORS COMMENTS
Capturing the serenity of a bygone era, this vintage print transports us back to the late 19th century in Cornwall. The image showcases a picturesque scene along the Liskeard to Looe Canal, believed to be Newbridge between Terras and Sandplace. With its calm waters reflecting the surrounding beauty, it offers a glimpse into the tranquil life that once flourished here. In this snapshot, we see a footbridge spanning across the canal, providing passage for both pedestrians and their furry companions. A lady stands on the bridge with her dogs by her side, enjoying an idyllic stroll amidst nature's splendor. Onlookers can't help but admire how seamlessly she blends into this peaceful landscape. To the right of the canal lies an expansive estuary, adding depth and grandeur to this already breathtaking view. It serves as a reminder of Cornwall's rich maritime heritage and its close connection with waterways throughout history. Preserved through time by Surgeon Captain John Campbell's lens around 1890, this photograph is not just a visual delight but also holds historical significance. Today, remnants of Newbridge can still be spotted from nearby roads—a testament to its enduring legacy. As we gaze upon this remarkable piece from Royal Cornwall Museum's collection, let us appreciate both its aesthetic charm and ability to transport us back in time—to an era when life moved at a slower pace along these enchanting waterways.
