Lower Lemon Street, Truro, Cornwall. Probably 1911

A view of Lower Lemon Street looking from Lemon Bridge towards Farrows Bank and the Red Lion Hotel in Boscawen Street. The street is decorated with flags and garlands, possibly for the Coronation of George V in 1911, or maybe for the Bath and West Show which was held in Truro in 1913. There is a man pulling a barrow, a postman delivering letters and a man on a bicycle on the left. A nun and a horse-drawn carriage can be seen on the right. The Royal Hotel, at 82 Lemon Street, is on the left and the Cathedral can be seen in the background. Photographer: Arthur William Jordan

Bunting Celebration City Flags Occasion Scene


EDITORS COMMENTS
Step back in time to the vibrant streets of Truro, Cornwall, captured in this remarkable print from around 1911. Lower Lemon Street comes alive with a festive atmosphere as flags and garlands adorn the buildings, hinting at a grand celebration. Perhaps it was the momentous Coronation of King George V in 1911 or even the renowned Bath and West Show held in Truro two years later. In this bustling scene, our eyes are drawn towards Lemon Bridge as we follow the street towards Farrows Bank and the iconic Red Lion Hotel on Boscawen Street. The street is teeming with activity; a hardworking man pulls his barrow while a dedicated postman diligently delivers letters along his route. On the left side of the frame, a cyclist glides by effortlessly. As we shift our gaze to the right side of this image, we catch sight of an intriguing contrast—a nun gracefully passing by alongside a majestic horse-drawn carriage. These elements serve as reminders of both tradition and progress that coexist harmoniously within this charming cityscape. Noteworthy landmarks also grace this photograph—the Royal Hotel standing proudly at number 82 Lemon Street and beyond it, peeking through against an azure sky backdrop, lies Truro Cathedral—an enduring symbol of faith and architectural beauty. Through Arthur William Jordan's lens, history unfolds before us—inviting us to immerse ourselves in Cornish heritage while marveling at moments frozen in time.
