EDITORS COMMENTS
Step back in time to the bustling streets of Truro, Cornwall, around 1890. This print captures Lower Lemon Street, a vibrant hub of activity and commerce during the Victorian era. The view stretches towards Boscawen Street, where the iconic Red Lion inn proudly stands before the construction of the central tower of Truro Cathedral. In this snapshot of history, we witness a lively scene teeming with men, women, and children going about their daily routines. Horse-drawn carts traverse the cobbled streets as locals navigate their way through town. On the left side of the image stands The Royal Hotel, an elegant establishment that welcomed visitors from near and far. To our right lies printing offices—a testament to Truro's growing importance as a center for communication and information dissemination. These establishments played a vital role in spreading news throughout Cornwall and beyond. The photograph offers glimpses into everyday life in this Cornish city—shops brimming with goods enticing passersby while businesses buzzed with activity. Notably absent from this picture is mention of commercial use; instead, it invites us to appreciate its historical significance. This remarkable visual treasure transports us back to an era when Mannings Dye Works dominated local industry—an emblematic symbol representing Truro's rich heritage.
