EDITORS COMMENTS
Transported back in time to late 1926, this print captures the essence of Lemon Bridge, Truro, Cornwall. Three distinguished gentlemen stand on the road, their gazes fixed towards Back Quay as if contemplating the bustling city beyond. In the distance stands Truro School, an iconic landmark that has witnessed generations of knowledge seekers. The scene is alive with activity and charm. On the left side of the frame, we catch a glimpse of The Market Inn owned by proprietor Gerald Shaw. Its inviting facade beckons locals and travelers alike for a moment of respite and camaraderie. Adjacent to it proudly stands the city hall, a symbol of civic pride. On the right side lies Taylors Garage - its signage catching our attention amidst this picturesque setting. A testament to early automobile culture in Cornwall, it serves as a reminder of how far we have come since then. Photographed by Arthur William Jordan with his keen eye for detail and composition, this riverfront view encapsulates both tranquility and vibrancy simultaneously. It transports us into an era where life moved at a different pace; where people strolled leisurely along streets lined with quaint shops and exchanged warm greetings with familiar faces. This remarkable piece from Royal Cornwall Museum allows us to immerse ourselves in history while appreciating the timeless beauty that defines Truro's landscape.
