The four wooden Marconi wireless towers at Poldhu, Mullion, Cornwall. Before 1912

A view of the four wooden 200ft Marconi towers at Poldhu, built by early 1902, showing the guide wires and signal station buildings. View from across the beach at Poldhu. The earlier two-masted tower installation, which was used by Guglielmo Marconi to transmit the first transatlantic radio message on 12th December 1901, was damaged by storms. Poldhu was taken over by the Royal Navy after the First World War and continued to operate as a research station until 1933, after which the site was cleared and donated to the National Trust. A granite monument, erected in 1937 by the Marconi Company, now stands on the site. A man is lying on the grass in the foreground. Photographer: Arthur William Jordan

East Pool Mine, Illogan, Cornwall. 1893. Group of Cornish miners at rest at the 310 level

Cornish miners at Croust time, at the 310 level. Miners enjoying their croust, having performed the first part of the days labour. Some of the holes bored are often blasted before croust, so that the smoke may clear away while the well earned crib and pipe are being enjoyed. The photographers son, Sidney Burrow, who sometimes acted as his father's assistant, is seated front row, third from left. The group include seven miners holding or smoking pipes. Six men are clearly holding half eaten pasties in string tied cotton or linen bags and others holding the empty bags. One man drinks from a water barrel and another barrel lies on the ground in front of the men on the right of the picture. Some miners have discarded their felt miners hats revealing the cloth scull cap worn beneath their hats. Candles clearly seen being held or secured to hats by lumps of clay, spare ones tied to jackets and some burning on the level wall in the back ground. Large amounts of hob nails can be seen on the soles of the miners boots. Photographer: John Charles Burrow

Monday, Bryan Pearce (1929-2007)

Oil on board, 1959. Bryan Pearce was born in St Ives in 1929 and suffered from the then unknown condition Phenylketonuria, which affects the normal development of the brain. Encouraged by his mother, the painter Mary Pearce, and then by other St Ives artists, he began drawing and painting in watercolours in 1953. His regular walks around St Ives, where he lived all his life, have been the inspiration for his subject matter, unconsciously recording the town's subtle changes. In this synthesis of imagination and reality, Pearce paints the world as he commands it; a sanctuary with an ever-present sun, bathing the streets and houses in the subtlest of colour harmonies. He worked slowly, but consistently, producing around twelve oil paintings a year. Often compared to Alfred Wallis, the late Peter Lanyon said of him: Because his sources are not seen with a passive eye, but are truly happenings, his painting is original'. His particular experiences of his hometown were captured with unique clarity. Pearce's artistic developments, his simple renditions of space, colour and light, evolve from a sophisticated understanding of composition. He had a career which spanned over fifty years, his paintings seem to evoke a serene sense of place, which seems at once personal yet archetypal. He is now recognised as one of the country's foremost naive painters, through the re-examination of familiar views and landmarks, Pearce offers us his profound, extraordinary experience of St Ives
