EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a nostalgic glimpse into the past, showcasing H. T. P. Motors Ltd in all its glory. Taken before the last section of the river was covered over in 1938, this image transports us back to a time when Truro, Cornwall was undergoing significant changes. In the foreground of the photograph, we see Lorry number CV 5333 parked on the Lemon Quay side of the River Kenwyn. This lorry serves as a testament to H. T. P. Motors Ltd's thriving business and their importance within the local community during that era. H. T. P. Motors Ltd. , once located at Back Quay, played an integral role in Truro's history and development. Interestingly enough, this very site would later become home to another iconic landmark - Pannier Market. The photographer behind this remarkable snapshot remains unknown; however, their keen eye for detail has allowed us to capture a moment frozen in time forever. As we gaze upon this historic image from Hosken Trevithick and Polkinhorn (pre-World War II), it is impossible not to be filled with curiosity about what life must have been like during those days gone by. The presence of H. T. P. Motors Ltd symbolizes progress and growth while reminding us of Truro's rich industrial heritage. This print serves as both a visual treasure trove for historians and an evocative reminder for locals who cherish their town's vibrant past.
