A view from Nampara side of the railway bridge looking down Boscawen Road with Perranporth village and beach in the background. The building just in the picture on the left and behind the railway embankment is St Michael's Church. The three story building with the words hotel on the roof is the Tywarnhayle Hotel. The shop in the distance from the top of the bridge is displaying signs saying, Tea and hot water supplied. The area of land between the bridge and the shop would become Boscawen Gardens and boating lake. The large houses on the sky line, top left of picture, are on Tywarnhayle Road. Just off picture to the right of the bridge is the site of the future Perranporth Beach Halt which would be opened in 1931 to serve the tourist traffic and would become at times one of the busiest stations on the line, better situated for town and beach than the main Perranporth station
