EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back in time to Lemon Street, Truro, Cornwall, probably in the year 1911. As we gaze upon this snapshot of history, our eyes are immediately drawn to the bustling scene unfolding before us. Standing near the Lemon Quay turning, we can see a vibrant street adorned with flags and trees that were likely put up to celebrate the Coronation of George V. In the foreground stands the Truro District Conservative Club at 80 Lemon Street, an elegant building that adds a touch of grandeur to this lively cityscape. The architecture is reminiscent of an era long gone by, showcasing intricate details and a sense of pride. The streets are teeming with life as people go about their daily activities amidst horse-drawn traffic. It's fascinating to observe how different transportation was back then compared to today's modern vehicles. The presence of these majestic creatures adds an air of nostalgia and charm. One cannot help but notice the carefully planted trees lining both sides of Lemon Street. These leafy sentinels stand tall and proud, providing shade and beauty for all who pass by. While the photographer remains unknown, their skillful capture has allowed us a glimpse into Truro's past. This photograph serves as a reminder that even though times change and cities evolve, there will always be traces left behind for future generations to discover and appreciate.
