EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from the early 1900s transports us back in time to Frances Street, Truro, Cornwall. The image captures a picturesque scene of this bustling city street, with its charming Edwardian houses and buildings lining both sides. As we gaze upon the photograph, our eyes are drawn towards the magnificent Cathedral spire towering over the rooftops in the distance. Intriguingly, two men on the right-hand side of the frame strike a pose for Arthur Philp's camera. Their presence adds a touch of human interest to an otherwise serene streetscape. One can only wonder about their stories and what brought them to this particular moment captured forever by Philp's lens. The composition is further enhanced by subtle details that bring life to this historical snapshot. A Cornish wheelbarrow rests against one of the houses, hinting at everyday activities and perhaps ongoing construction work within this vibrant town. As we admire this remarkable piece from Royal Cornwall Museum's collection, it serves as a reminder of how much has changed over time while also highlighting enduring elements that make Truro so special – its architectural beauty and rich history preserved through photographs like these
