Lemon Quay from Back Quay, Truro, Cornwall. Mid 1940s, towards the end of the Second World War Featured Print

Lemon Quay from Back Quay, Truro, Cornwall. Mid 1940s, towards the end of the Second World War

A view from Back Quay towards Taylors Transport Ltd.'s garage with the car park full of lorries. Just out of frame, on the right, are the premises of H.T.P. Motors Ltd. During the Second World War, H.T.P. handed the Army most of their stock of cars and commercial vehicles and purchased transport generally for Government purposes. Large cars were converted to ambulances and essential civilian motor transport was provided and maintained. Ranging from armament production to the repair of Spitfire components, H.T.P.'s activities extended and multiplied rapidly with the country's growing demands. The parked vehicles are awaiting maintenance or conversion in the H.T.P. Auxiliary Army Workshop. Photographer: unknown

The Lander Monument, Lemon Street, Truro, Cornwall. Probably early 1900s

A close-up view of the Lander Monument from the top of Lemon Street. A woman with a child in a pushchair stands beside the railings outside 5 Upper Lemon Villas while a man stands next to the town house at 1 Falmouth Road. The Lander Monument was erected at the top of Lemon Street in 1835. The column was designed by Philip Sambell, who had overcome the difficulty of being born deaf to become a distinguished architect. The Monument celebrates the discoveries, including the discovery of the source of the River Niger in 1827, of the Lander brothers, Richard and John. The statue of Richard by Neville Northy Burnard was added in 1852 to commemorate his death during an expedition. Photographer: Arthur William Jordan
