EDITORS COMMENTS
Step back in time with this print from the late 1890s, showcasing Looe railway station in East Looe, Cornwall. The image transports us to an era of Victorian charm and Cornish allure. At first glance, our eyes are drawn to the far end of the railway station where a group of children can be seen joyfully playing amidst their idyllic surroundings. The scene captures the essence of a bygone era; a simpler time when innocence and adventure were intertwined. As we delve deeper into the photograph, our gaze is led towards the mesmerizing foreshore that stretches out before us. The tranquil waters glisten under the warm sunlight as they gently lap against the shore. Intriguingly, our attention is then directed towards Looe bridge which stands proudly in the distance. Its architectural beauty complements its natural surroundings perfectly, acting as a gateway between land and sea. This stunning snapshot was skillfully captured by Surgeon Captain John Campbell, whose keen eye for detail immortalizes this moment forever. Through his lens, he has encapsulated not only a picturesque view but also an insight into daily life during this period. As we admire this historical gem from within Royal Cornwall Museum's collection, let it transport us back to an enchanting time filled with laughter and exploration - reminding us of both how much things have changed and how much they have stayed delightfully familiar throughout generations past.
