Carnon Viaduct, Perranwell, Cornwall. Around 1925 Featured 2015 Print

Carnon Viaduct, Perranwell, Cornwall. Around 1925

Isambard Kingdom Brunel's original wooden viaduct crossing the Carnon valley, which opened in 1863. It was replaced in 1933 by a stone structure. 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

Group of men at Daddyport bridge, Tregony, Cornwall. Around 1925

Qualification as a voter in Tregony required proof of 'house keeping' by boiling a pot within the limits of the borough over an open fire, giving rise to the term 'pot wallopers' to describe voters.

East Pool Mine, Illogan, Cornwall. 1893 Featured 2015 Print

East Pool Mine, Illogan, Cornwall. 1893

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
