City Port Transport Water Waterways


EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from the Royal Cornwall Museum takes us back in time to around 1900, capturing a picturesque scene off Malpas Road in Truro, Cornwall. The image showcases a bustling maritime setting with ships of various sizes elegantly floating along the Truro River. From Worths Quay, we are granted a glimpse into the city's rich history as an important port and hub for water transport. In this snapshot, our attention is drawn to a barge and several other vessels gracefully moored on the tranquil waters. The composition reveals an intriguing juxtaposition between nature and industry; beside one of the warehouses in the distance lies a pile of logs and timber, possibly associated with Harveys timberyard - evidence of Truro's thriving trade during that era. The identity of the photographer remains unknown but their skillful capture allows us to appreciate both the beauty and functionality of these waterways. This photograph not only serves as a visual testament to Cornwall's maritime heritage but also invites contemplation about how transportation has evolved over time. With its serene ambiance and historical significance, this print transports us back in time while reminding us of Truro's vital role as a bustling port city nestled amidst stunning Cornish landscapes.
