Coombe Creek, Kea, Cornwall. Around 1910 Featured Print

Coombe Creek, Kea, Cornwall. Around 1910

John Stevens Scoble sawing wood on the foreshore of the creek, alongside what appears to be fishing nets drying on poles. He is working in front of his house, Beach Cottage. There is a view of houses and cottages on the opposite shore with small boats on the shore and in the river. The two thatched cottages, Moor Close and Bunny Thatch, on the opposite shore were demolished between the First and Second World Wars. Holly Cottage can be seen to the right of the thatched cottages with Coombe Villa on the far right. Photographer: Arthur William Jordan

Fore Street, Probus, Cornwall. Around 1913 Featured Print

Fore Street, Probus, Cornwall. Around 1913

A view looking east towards the centre of the village. Truck Hill is behind the camera. A number of people pose for the camera including two men from Thomas J. Teague's, Monumental Mason's marble works on the left, a man on a horse and cart, two boys and young child. Further up the road can be seen two ladies and two men in the distance. The lady standing in the centre of the road looking towards the camera has the same hairstyle, with a bow, and clothing as the lady with two children outside the Cornwall County Police station in photograph TRURI : PROct.6. She is also standing in the road outside the Police Constable's home/station in this photograph which gives reason to believe that she is the village constable's wife, Maud Prust (nee Westcott), aged 26. The young child standing with the two young lads is dressed, except for the bonnet, in very similar clothing to the standing child in TRURI : PROct.6. Given the body language of the lady and the two young lads, it would suggest that the child is under their care, with the lady keeping an eye on her child and the lads and not posing for the photograph. Given the research conducted for photograph TRURI : PROct.6, this would put the date of the photograph around 1913. Photographer: Samuel John Govier


Schoolmaster working as a mason, St Stephen in Brannel, Cornwall. Early 1900s Featured Print

Schoolmaster working as a mason, St Stephen in Brannel, Cornwall. Early 1900s

The original title is "Schoolmaster working as a mason". However, there are two possibilities. This could be the schoolmaster's home and he has some form of house renovation being undertaken inside the house, which he is doing some labouring to help out. The other possibility is that he has taken delivery of house coal and is in the the process of breaking it up and storing it at the rear of the property. Note the narrow wooden miner's type wheelbarrow to his right. This had a steel wheel and was common in Cornish gardens into the 1950s and 1960s. Also in the background is a barrel on wheels. The schoolmaster is using a long handled Cornish shovel. Photographer: Canon Henry Holroyd Mills
