The Sloop Inn, St Ives, Cornwall. Before 1922
General view of the Sloop Inn, St Ives before the building of Wharf Road in 1922. The landlord was Samuel Rogers. There is a lady with 3 small children standing in front of the building and to the side, in a street, is a gentleman and horse and carriage. The inn is located on the wharf and is one of the oldest inns in Cornwall. The public house is dated to "circa 1312" although the present building was built in the 17th or 18th century. Made of granite rubble, with a slate roof, the Sloop Inn was the favourite haunt of Victorian artists including Louis Grier and many of his paintings hung there in earlier years.
