The boys in the foreground, on the steps, and the one walking along Back Quay on the left are wearing shorts. Signage for the premises of N. Gill & Son and John Julian can be seen. To the right, on the corner of Tabernacle Street, the sun is shining on a Pratt's motor spirit advertisement. Photographer: Arthur William Jordan.

Market Jew Street, Penzance, Cornwall. 1920s Featured Print

Market Jew Street, Penzance, Cornwall. 1920s

View up Market Jew Street towards the Market House with the statue of Sir Humphrey Davy in front. Sir Humphrey Davy was born in Penzance in 1778 and became President of the Royal Society. Glass lantern slide from a lecture, entitled 'Some Historic Cornish Beauty Spots', given by Cornishman and amateur photographer, Major Arthur William Gill, in around 1925. He was well known in Cornwall and elsewhere during the 1920s and 1930s for his presentations of stills and cine film to many groups including The Royal Institution of Cornwall, Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society and the London Cornish Society. The quarter plate slides which he took prolifically with his 'ordinary camera' are, in many cases, colour. These were painted by his own hand to great effect.
