EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph, taken around 1922, transports us back in time to Truro Cathedral School in Cornwall. A group of young schoolboys, most likely the cricket team, proudly pose on the steps outside the grand doorway. Their crisp white uniforms stand out against the backdrop of this historic educational institution. Truro Cathedral School was established with great ambition and promise when its foundation stone was laid on October 21st, 1908. The school's primary purpose was to educate choristers who would serve at Truro Cathedral. For decades, it played a vital role in shaping young minds and nurturing their musical talents. In this snapshot frozen in time, we witness the camaraderie and youthful energy that permeated through these boys' lives. With their cricket gear held firmly by their sides and mischievous smiles adorning their faces, they epitomize the spirit of childhood innocence intertwined with a passion for sports. Sadly, as years passed by like fleeting seasons on a cricket field, Truro Cathedral School closed its doors for good in 1982. Yet this photograph serves as a poignant reminder of an era gone by – an era where education took place within these hallowed walls while friendships were forged amidst games played on sunlit afternoons. As we gaze upon this image captured by an unknown photographer from long ago, let us cherish the memories it evokes – memories of Cornish pupils engaged in sport and learning; memories that remind us how education can shape lives beyond measure
