EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from the early 1900s takes us back in time to the stunning coastal beauty of Newquay, Cornwall. The image showcases a hand coloured slide capturing the mesmerizing view of "The Beach" from Great Western Beach's Headland. As we gaze upon this historical gem, we are transported to an era where simplicity and natural splendor reigned supreme. Cornish charm emanates through every element within the frame. Towering cliffs adorned with vibrant greenery provide a majestic backdrop against which crashing waves relentlessly kiss the rugged rocks below. The untamed sea stretches out as far as the eye can see, its vastness both humbling and awe-inspiring. In this snapshot of history, men and women dotting the shoreline add a touch of human presence amidst nature's grandeur. Their figures evoke nostalgia for simpler times when beach outings were cherished moments shared with loved ones or perhaps solitary reflections by those seeking solace in nature's embrace. While the identity of the photographer remains unknown, their talent shines through in immortalizing this picturesque scene. This print serves as a testament to Cornwall's timeless allure and reminds us that even decades later, its breathtaking landscapes continue to captivate hearts. Displayed at Royal Cornwall Museum, this photograph invites visitors to delve into Cornwall's rich heritage while marveling at its unspoiled beauty. It stands not only as a reminder of our past but also as an inspiration for future generations to cherish and protect these precious coastal treasures for years to come
