EDITORS COMMENTS
Step back in time to the historic Royal Visit of 1903! This print captures the anticipation and excitement that filled Ferris Town, Truro, Cornwall on the 15th of July. A large group of people eagerly await the arrival of none other than the Prince and Princess of Wales, who would later become King George V and Queen Mary. The occasion? The Benediction of the cathedral nave. As their Royal train pulled into Grampound Road station, a sense of jubilation spread through the streets. The Royal couple then embarked on an open carriage ride to Truro, where they were greeted by this enthusiastic crowd. This remarkable image showcases not only a momentous event but also provides a glimpse into Cornish history and culture. It is evident that both locals and visitors alike came together to witness this extraordinary spectacle. During their visit, King George V and Queen Mary resided at Tregothnan in St Michael Penkivel – undoubtedly a memorable stay for all involved. Preserved with care by an unknown photographer, this snapshot immortalizes a time when crowds gathered with great fervor to welcome royalty. Today, it serves as a testament to our rich heritage and reminds us of moments that shaped our collective identity.
