St Georges Road looking towards Carvedras Viaduct, Truro, Cornwall. After 1902

The spires of the Parish Church of St George the Martyr can be seen on the skyline. The photograph is dated after 1902 as the stone structure that replaced Brunels earlier original timber fanned viaduct can be seen. This new viaduct opened on 17th August 1902.

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a charming Victorian scene on St Georges Road in Truro, Cornwall. Taken after 1902, the image showcases the newly constructed Carvedras Viaduct that replaced Brunel's original timber structure. Snow blankets the ground, adding a touch of winter magic to the bustling city street. In this snapshot frozen in time, a young man diligently clears snow from the sidewalk near a gas lamp post. His shovel and broom are evidence of his efforts to keep the path clear for pedestrians braving the cold. The spires of the Parish Church of St George the Martyr rise majestically against the skyline, creating an enchanting backdrop. The photograph exudes an air of nostalgia as it transports us back to an era when horse-drawn carriages traversed these streets and steam trains chugged along on their tracks above. It offers a glimpse into daily life in Truro during this period – people going about their business amidst beautiful Victorian buildings that line both sides of St Georges Road. With its meticulous composition and attention to detail, this print by Arthur Philp is not just a historical document but also a work of art. It allows us to step back in time and immerse ourselves in this picturesque Cornish cityscape during wintertime - where history meets beauty at every corner.
