EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a momentous occasion in history - the Royal Visit to Truro, Cornwall on 15th July 1903. Crowds of excited people have lined the streets, eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Prince and Princess of Wales, who would later become King George V and Queen Mary. The atmosphere is electric with anticipation as everyone gathers to catch a glimpse of royalty. The occasion for this grand visit was the Benediction of the cathedral nave, an event that held great significance for both locals and visitors alike. The Royal couple arrived at Grampound Road station by train before embarking on their journey to Truro in an open carriage. As they pass through the bustling streets, all eyes are fixed upon them. Intriguingly, amidst this sea of jubilant faces stands Henry Lowry's Hatter and Hosier shop at 7 King Street. It serves as a testament to how even local businesses were swept up in the excitement surrounding such prestigious events. The photograph itself is a remarkable piece of history captured by an unknown photographer. It immortalizes not only the royal visit but also showcases Cornish pride and hospitality at its finest. As we gaze upon this image today, we can almost feel ourselves transported back in time - witnessing firsthand the joyous celebrations that unfolded during this unforgettable day in Truro's past.
