EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back in time to the enchanting Morval House, nestled near Looe in Cornwall around 1890. The grand Tudor residence stands proudly, its Grade I listed status a testament to its historical significance. From the south-western perspective, we see Morval Parish Church dedicated to St Wenna gracefully positioned behind the house. In this snapshot of bygone days, two men diligently mow the sprawling lawn with an early version of a lawnmower - one pulling and the other pushing. Their efforts add a touch of movement to an otherwise serene scene. On the right-hand side of the house, several individuals stand by, perhaps admiring both the architectural beauty and picturesque surroundings. Morval House holds deep roots within Cornish history as it was once home to prominent families such as Glynn, Buller, and Kitson. Over time, various alterations have been made to this magnificent manor during the 18th century and beyond. The photographer responsible for capturing this timeless moment is none other than Surgeon Captain John Campbell. Through his lens, he immortalizes not only a stunning country estate but also provides us with a glimpse into an era long past.
