EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back in time to a picturesque view of the Cathedral in Truro, Cornwall. Captured by the talented photographer Arthur William Jordan after 1910, this image showcases not only the grandeur of the cathedral but also provides glimpses into the bustling industrial life along the river. From Poltisco, we are presented with a panoramic vista that encompasses Garras Wharf and its adjacent Harveys timber yard. The wooden houses lining the riverside add charm and character to this scene, painting a vivid picture of life in Truro during this era. The city's transport system is on full display as several boats can be seen gracefully moored at the wharves. These vessels were essential for trade and transportation, connecting Truro to other parts of Cornwall and beyond. It is fascinating to note that where now stands a bus station was once known as "the Green". This area served as an important hub for both commerce and social gatherings. Today it serves as a reminder of how cities evolve over time while still retaining their unique heritage. This remarkable photograph allows us to step back into history and appreciate not only Truro's architectural beauty but also its vibrant industrial past. It reminds us that every corner holds stories waiting to be discovered, offering glimpses into our shared human experience.
