The Mermaid of Zennor bench end in Zennor Church, Cornwall. Around 1925

A captain of a ship anchored off Pendower Cove believed that he was hailed by a mermaid and the people of Zennor had a mermaid figure carved on a bench end in Zennor Church as a warning to young men against 'smiling pon the maidens in church'. 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.
