City River Scene Street Transport


Transport and Timelessness - A Glimpse into Truro's Past

EDITORS COMMENTS
. Step back in time to late 1926 with this print of Lemon Bridge, Lemon Quay, Truro, Cornwall. The scene captures the essence of a bustling city street, frozen in history. As we peer down Back Quay from Lemon bridge, our eyes are drawn to four men standing outside Newtons Hairdresser. Their presence adds a touch of life to the otherwise still image. The charm of this era is further accentuated by the sight of a period lorry parked nearby, proudly displaying its registration as RL 1654. Next to it stands an elegant horse and cart stationed outside the Market Inn owned by Gerald Shaw and City Hall. These modes of transport were once the lifeline connecting communities and businesses in Truro. A man positioned on the bridge gazes across the river towards Taylors Garage and County Coach Factory while his eyes wander over Motor Works Garage on Lemon Quay. These establishments were undoubtedly vital hubs for automobile enthusiasts at that time. Intriguingly nestled amidst this vibrant cityscape is Truro School visible in the distance—a symbol of education shaping young minds against a backdrop steeped in history. Photographer Arthur William Jordan has masterfully captured this snapshot from another era—inviting us to immerse ourselves in an enchanting moment frozen forever within these frames.
