EDITORS COMMENTS
Step back in time to the bustling streets of Truro, Cornwall, between 1910 and 1920. This print captures a vibrant scene on Boscawen Street, showcasing the charm and energy of this historic town. From the vantage point atop city hall's roof, photographer Arthur William Jordan perfectly frames the northern side of Boscawen Street. The eye is immediately drawn to the iconic Red Lion Hotel standing proudly at one end, while Truro Cathedral majestically looms in the background. As we explore this snapshot from yesteryears, our attention is captivated by an array of business premises that lined this busy street. Farrows Bank Ltd stands tall with its grand facade next to R &s Hawke's Practical Tailors—a testament to Truro's thriving commercial hub. Collett & Seymour catches our eye with its inviting storefront, followed by Webb & Co—known for their exquisite drapers and millinery offerings. Further down the street lies Pearson Opticians—an establishment dedicated to sight testing—and Leonards Boots and Shoes store where locals would find quality footwear for every occasion. This remarkable photograph not only transports us back in time but also serves as a valuable historical record of Truro's past. It allows us to appreciate how much has changed over the years while reminding us of the enduring spirit that still thrives within these ancient walls.
