EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from the early 1900s showcases the picturesque St Michaels Church, nestled in the quaint village of Porthilly, St Minver, Cornwall. The image transports us back in time to an era when small boats dotted the serene Porthilly beach against a backdrop of this magnificent church. With its towering spire and intricate architectural details, St Michaels Church stands as a testament to Cornish history and religious heritage. The photographer behind this remarkable shot remains unknown, yet their skillful composition captures the essence of this idyllic coastal scene. The estuary gracefully flows nearby, reflecting the vibrant colors of both sky and land. As we gaze upon this print, our eyes are drawn to the majestic Camel Rock rising proudly amidst the river's gentle currents. The sandy shores provide a tranquil foreground for observing local fishermen tending to their boats or perhaps preparing for another day at sea. This snapshot encapsulates not only the beauty of nature but also serves as a reminder of Cornwall's deep connection with maritime traditions. Preserved by Royal Cornwall Museum, this photograph invites us to appreciate Cornwall's rich cultural tapestry while offering glimpses into daily life during simpler times. It is through such historical treasures that we can delve into our collective past and gain insights into how communities like Porthilly have evolved over generations—forever leaving their mark on both land and spirit.
