EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back in time to the enchanting landscapes of Sandplace, a picturesque village nestled along the Liskeard to Looe Canal in Morval, Cornwall. Dating back to around 1890, this image captures a serene view from the canal upstream at Sandplace, offering a glimpse into the region's rich history. In this idyllic scene, our eyes are drawn towards the lime kiln standing proudly in the distance. Its towering structure serves as a testament to Cornwall's industrial past and its significant role in lime production during that era. As we follow the meandering curves of the canal, we spot an elegant bridge gracefully spanning over railway tracks further down. This architectural marvel adds another layer of charm and intrigue to an already breathtaking vista. The photographer behind this remarkable composition is none other than Surgeon Captain John Campbell. Through his lens, he masterfully captures not only the physical beauty of Sandplace but also manages to evoke a sense of tranquility and nostalgia that resonates with viewers even today. This print from Royal Cornwall Museum transports us back in time and invites us to immerse ourselves in Cornwall's waterways and natural splendor. It serves as a poignant reminder of how landscapes can change over time while preserving their timeless allure for generations to come.
