EDITORS COMMENTS
Step back in time to the early 1900s with this print of Ferris Town in Truro, Cornwall. The winter season has transformed the bustling city into a serene snow-covered wonderland. As you gaze at the image, your eyes are drawn down both sides of Ferris Town towards Frances Street, where traces of horse-drawn carriages and carefully navigating pedestrians can be seen amidst the snowy scene. The architectural beauty of Victorian and Edwardian buildings adorns the streets, their grandeur standing tall against nature's wintry touch. The slushy remnants on the ground remind us that even during this enchanting time, life goes on – people continue their daily routines despite the weather. Intriguing details emerge as you examine closer; boys gather outside a shop on the left side, perhaps exchanging stories or marveling at their surroundings. Photographer Arthur Philp skillfully captures this moment frozen in time, allowing us to glimpse into an era long gone. Transport yourself to a bygone era with this stunning snapshot from Royal Cornwall Museum. Immerse yourself in Cornish history as you explore every inch of this mesmerizing street scene – a testament to Truro's enduring charm and resilience throughout changing seasons.
