EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back in time to the early 1900s, capturing a picturesque view of The Leats in Truro, Cornwall. Standing at the east entrance of Victoria Gardens, we are treated to a stunning perspective looking towards the Carvedras viaduct. The alluring stone structure that now graces this spot replaced Isambard Kingdom Brunel's original timber fanned viaduct in 1902. A man stands on the bridge, seemingly lost in contemplation as he gazes upon the tranquil scene before him. Through a veil of trees on the left-hand side, we catch a glimpse of St Georges Methodist Chapel. Its presence adds an air of serenity and spirituality to this already idyllic setting. Victoria Gardens itself holds historical significance as it was created to commemorate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee in 1897. It serves as both a testament to her reign and a sanctuary for locals and visitors alike seeking respite from bustling city life. The photographer behind this remarkable image remains unknown but has skillfully captured not just a moment frozen in time but also an essence—a reminder of simpler days spent strolling through beautifully manicured parks like these. As we admire this print from the Royal Cornwall Museum collection, let us transport ourselves back over a century ago and imagine what it must have been like to walk along The Leats during those bygone years—when nature intertwined seamlessly with architectural marvels—and find solace within its peaceful embrace.
