EDITORS COMMENTS
Step back in time to the late 1930s with this print of Polzeath, St Minver, Cornwall. The image captures a picturesque scene from the south western side of Polzeath, looking north easterly towards the vibrant main village area. Bathed in glorious sunshine, it showcases a bustling beach adorned with parked cars and people relishing a delightful summer's day. Intriguingly, at the center right of the picture lies an intriguing sight - early stages of construction for what appears to be a road bridge. A temporary footbridge stands tall alongside a cement mixer, workman's hut and various building materials scattered around. This snapshot offers us a glimpse into the dedication and hard work that went into shaping this coastal landscape we know today. For those familiar with modern-day Polzeath, it is fascinating to compare this image to its present state. The completed bridge can now be seen standing proudly in all its glory (as depicted in image TRURI: MIVph. 6), serving as a testament to human ingenuity and progress over time. This remarkable photograph not only highlights Cornish history but also celebrates the timeless allure of our coastlines. It serves as an invitation for visitors and locals alike to explore Cornwall's rich heritage while enjoying its breathtaking natural beauty – from sandy shores stretching endlessly along the coastline to charming seaside villages like Polzeath.
