EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the essence of a bygone era in Cornwall. Taken in 1977, it showcases the picturesque Cornish Chough pub located in Porth Way, Newquay. The view is set against a backdrop of vibrant summer colors, with umbrellas dotting the garden and adding a touch of charm to this idyllic scene. The Duchy Bar takes center stage in this image, exuding an inviting atmosphere that beckons locals and tourists alike. It stands as a testament to the importance of public houses within Cornwall's leisure industry, serving as social hubs where friendships were forged and stories shared over pints of local brews. However, time has brought about changes to this beloved establishment. Today, what was once a lively pub has been transformed into private residences while a small housing estate now occupies its surroundings. This transformation reflects the evolving landscape and development patterns within Cornwall. Photographer Charles Woolf expertly captures not only the physical beauty but also the nostalgic sentiment associated with this iconic location. His lens transports us back to simpler times when community spirit thrived amidst these walls. As we gaze upon this photograph print from Royal Cornwall Museum, we are reminded of both courage and resilience - qualities deeply ingrained within Cornish culture.
