EDITORS COMMENTS
Step back in time to the bustling fairgrounds of Truro, Cornwall around 1900. This print captures a vivid scene on The Green, now known as Truro bus station. As you gaze upon this snapshot from history, you are transported to an era where excitement and joy filled the air. The image showcases a vibrant crowd comprising Cornish men, women, and children eagerly exploring the wonders of the fair. Amidst the sea of faces, towering trees provide shade and add a touch of serenity to this lively atmosphere. At the heart of it all stands J. Brewer & Sons' fairground ride from Indian Queens and Bath—a magnificent spectacle that undoubtedly mesmerized visitors with its thrilling twists and turns. Its presence dominates the frame, drawing your attention towards its grandeur. Photographer Arthur William Jordan skillfully captures both candid moments and orchestrated amusement within this single frame—children's laughter echoing through time while adults marvel at these enchanting amusements. This remarkable photograph serves as a testament to our enduring fascination with fairs throughout history—a reminder that even amidst changing times, some things remain constant: our desire for entertainment and connection.
