EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a momentous occasion in Truro, Cornwall on the 15th of July, 1903. The streets are teeming with excitement as crowds gather to witness the departure of the Infantry from High Cross towards King Street. This grand procession marks the visit of the Prince and Princess of Wales, who would later become King George V and Queen Mary. The royal couple's arrival at Grampound Road station by train was followed by a regal journey through Truro in an open carriage. Their destination was Tregothnan in St Michael Penkivel, where they resided during their visit to this charming Cornish town. As we gaze upon this historic scene, our eyes are drawn to G. H. Philps at 2 King Street and Harry, City Shoe Manufacturer at 3 King Street - two establishments that witnessed this remarkable parade pass right before their doors. The atmosphere is electric with anticipation as locals line the streets to welcome their esteemed guests. It is a celebration like no other; a moment when history converges with everyday life. This print not only immortalizes a significant royal visit but also serves as a testament to the enduring spirit of community and pride that resonates within Cornwall. It reminds us of how moments like these shape our collective memory and strengthen our sense of identity.
