EDITORS COMMENTS
This print transports us back in time to the bustling streets of Truro, Cornwall, around 1910. The shop front of G. H. Philp on King Street takes center stage, proudly displaying a myriad of services offered to the townspeople. The attention-grabbing signage adorning the facade reveals that G. H. Philp was not just your average shop but a one-stop destination for all things creative and practical. From paper hangings to picture frames, mount cutting to sign writing, this establishment catered to every artistic need imaginable. Additionally, they boasted an impressive range of stationery supplies and fancy goods that would surely entice any shopper. As we delve deeper into the details captured by possibly Arthur Philp's lens, we notice stacks upon stacks of pictorial postcards neatly arranged inside the shopfront window. These charming snapshots offer glimpses into Cornwall's picturesque landscapes and local scenes - perhaps even some produced by G. H. Philp themselves as proud publishers. The photograph exudes a sense of pride in craftsmanship and entrepreneurial spirit as it showcases this thriving business at its prime location within Truro's vibrant cityscape. It serves as a testament to the importance placed on quality products and personalized customer service during those times. Today, this image stands as a valuable historical artifact preserved by the Royal Cornwall Museum—a reminder of Truro's rich commercial heritage and an invitation for us to imagine ourselves strolling through its streets over a century ago.
