EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the early 1900s, capturing a serene view of Furniss Island in Truro, Cornwall. The image showcases the bustling cityscape with its charming blend of commercial buildings nestled along the riverside. Standing tall and proud is the iconic Furniss Biscuit Factory, an integral part of Truro's history and heritage. The photographer, Arthur Philp, skillfully frames this scene from Boscawen Bridge, allowing us to appreciate both the architectural beauty of the buildings and the tranquil waters of River Allen. As our gaze wanders across the photograph, we are greeted by a delightful surprise - mute swans gracefully gliding through the river's gentle currents. Cornwall's natural splendor shines through as these elegant creatures add a touch of enchantment to an already picturesque setting. Their presence reminds us that even amidst urban development, nature finds its way into our lives in unexpected ways. This print not only captures a moment frozen in time but also serves as a testament to Cornwall's rich industrial past and its harmonious coexistence with nature. It invites viewers to reflect on how cities evolve while retaining their unique charm. Displayed at Royal Cornwall Museum for all to admire, this snapshot transports us back in time and allows us to appreciate Truro's historical significance while marveling at its inherent beauty.
