EDITORS COMMENTS
Step back in time to the mid-1920s with this print of Quay Street, Truro, Cornwall. The bustling street comes alive as you take in the view from Quay Street, with Duke Street on the left and Newbridge Street on the right. St Mary's Street leads your gaze straight ahead towards the magnificent cathedral that stands proudly at its end. In this snapshot of history, one cannot miss P. W. J. Treleavens restaurant situated on 1 and 2 Duke Street. Its charming storefront adds character to an already vibrant scene. As you explore every detail of this image, a sense of nostalgia washes over you. Amidst the hustle and bustle of city life captured in this photograph is a delightful surprise - a dog happily strolling along Quay Street. This furry companion brings warmth and charm to an otherwise ordinary day in Truro. Photographer Arthur William Jordan has masterfully preserved this moment in time for us to enjoy today. His keen eye for detail allows us to immerse ourselves fully into the rich history of Cornwall's streetscape. This print from Royal Cornwall Museum serves as a window into our past, reminding us how much cities evolve while still retaining their unique essence throughout generations.
