EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back in time to the early 20th century, around 1910, capturing a picturesque scene at the Waterfall Gardens in Truro, Cornwall. A group of women and children stand beside a magnificent waterfall, its cascading waters creating a soothing symphony amidst the lush greenery. In the background stands the impressive Carvedras Viaduct, an all-stone structure that replaced Brunel's original timber fanned viaduct in 1902. The photograph beautifully showcases the harmonious blend of nature and engineering marvels. The piers of Brunel's original viaduct can still be seen as a testament to its historical significance. Waterfall Gardens opened their gates to visitors in 1893 and were later incorporated into Victoria Gardens, created to commemorate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee in 1897. As we delve deeper into this snapshot from history captured by photographer Arthur Philp, we are transported into an era where leisurely strolls through parks were cherished moments for recreation. The park is adorned with vibrant trees, shrubs, and plants that add enchantment to this idyllic setting. In period costumes reflecting early 20th-century fashion trends, a lady elegantly poses alongside her young companion—a boy who exudes curiosity about his surroundings. This image encapsulates not only the beauty of Cornwall but also serves as a reminder of how landscapes evolve over time while preserving their timeless charm.
