EDITORS COMMENTS
Stepping into the past: A glimpse of St Georges Road, Truro in the early 1900s. This print captures a vibrant scene from Victorian Cornwall, where two elegantly dressed ladies stroll along the pavement amidst a bustling cityscape. The image transports us to an era when horse-drawn carriages and gas lamps adorned the streets, evoking a sense of nostalgia for bygone times. Located near the junction with Frances Street and Ferris Town, this historic corner showcases architectural gems that still stand today. Majestic buildings line both sides of the road, their facades reflecting Victorian grandeur and intricate detailing. Amongst them stands proudly the Methodist Church of St George, its spire reaching towards the heavens. Photographed by Arthur Philp, this snapshot freezes a moment in time; it encapsulates not only a specific location but also captures glimpses into people's lives during an era marked by societal change and progress. It invites us to imagine what conversations these well-dressed ladies might have shared as they strolled through Truro's charming streets. This remarkable piece from Royal Cornwall Museum allows us to immerse ourselves in history while appreciating the beauty of Cornish architecture and street scenes long gone. As we gaze upon this photograph print, we are reminded of how our cities evolve over time yet retain echoes of their past glory.
