Hell Bay, Bryher in a storm, Isles of Scilly, Cornwall. Around 1925 Featured 2016 Print

Hell Bay, Bryher in a storm, Isles of Scilly, Cornwall. Around 1925

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

Mr A.W. Gills motor vehicle on a cart after being destroyed by fire. Liskey Hill, Perranporth, Cornwall. June 1906 Featured 2016 Print

Mr A.W. Gills motor vehicle on a cart after being destroyed by fire. Liskey Hill, Perranporth, Cornwall. June 1906

On Sunday returning from Perranporth just as the car was negotiating Liskey Hill, there was a sudden jerk and then a continuance of motion as if everything was right. But almost immediately Mrs Gill saw flames coming through from the lower part of the car at the bottom of the steering gears. Mr and Mrs Gill and a man who accompanied them were out of the car in time to see the vehicle burst into flames. It was a complete wreck. The fire was apparently caused by a breakage of the supply pipe which caused the petroleum to leak onto the hot exhaust. The car is not covered by insurance. Referenced from the Royal Cornwall Gazette, 28th June 1906, page 8, column 2. Photographer: Arthur Philp

Perranporth railway bridge. Late 1800s Featured 2016 Print

Perranporth railway bridge. Late 1800s

A view from Nampara side of the railway bridge looking down Boscawen Road with Perranporth village and beach in the background. The building just in the picture on the left and behind the railway embankment is St Michael's Church. The three story building with the words hotel on the roof is the Tywarnhayle Hotel. The shop in the distance from the top of the bridge is displaying signs saying, Tea and hot water supplied. The area of land between the bridge and the shop would become Boscawen Gardens and boating lake. The large houses on the sky line, top left of picture, are on Tywarnhayle Road. Just off picture to the right of the bridge is the site of the future Perranporth Beach Halt which would be opened in 1931 to serve the tourist traffic and would become at times one of the busiest stations on the line, better situated for town and beach than the main Perranporth station
