Capturing the Majesty - A Historic Royal Visit to Ferris Town, Truro

EDITORS COMMENTS
. In this print from July 15th, 1903, we witness a momentous occasion as crowds of excited people line the streets of Ferris Town in Cornwall. The anticipation is palpable as they 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 reason for such grandeur? The Benediction of the cathedral nave. This significant event has brought together a parade of mounted guards that gracefully ride through the decorated streets adorned with flags and banners. It's an awe-inspiring sight that showcases both regality and community spirit. The Royal couple's journey began at Grampound Road station where their majestic train arrived before embarking on an open carriage ride to Truro. During their stay in Cornwall, they were graciously hosted at Tregothnan in St Michael Penkivel. This remarkable photograph captures not only a historic royal visit but also reflects the joyous atmosphere created by enthusiastic locals who came out en masse to welcome their future monarchs. Preserved by time, this image serves as a testament to Cornish pride and devotion towards their beloved royals. As we delve into history through images like these, we are reminded of moments when celebration transcends boundaries – uniting people from all walks of life under one common purpose: honoring tradition while embracing change.
