Dolcoath Mine, Camborne, Cornwall. 1893

The Man Engine at 234 fathoms level below adit, in 1893. The man engine went down to the 314 fathom level. Miners can be seen standing on the steps of the engine rod while others stand on solars or platforms fixed in the shaft at intervals of 12 feet. The man engine made 5 strokes a minute, thus enabling men to ride up or down 60 feet a minute. Ordinary ladders were fixed alongside the man engine or against the footwall of the lode. Photographer: John Charles Burrow.

Passmore Edwards Free Library, Truro, Cornwall. Around 1899

The Passmore Edwards Free Library and technical school on the corner of Pydar Street and Union Place. Funded by Passmore Edwards and designed by Silvanus Trevail, the school was built in 1899 as a Technical College for men and women. It became a secondary school for boys aged 11-15 in the 1930s. The school was built as an extension to the Passmore Edwards Free Library which had been built in 1896. Both buildings were later used as Truro Community Library. A group of mainly school children pose for the camera. Probably taken not long after the school opened. Photographer: Arthur William Jordan.

Loe Pool, Helston, Cornwall. 1920s

A 64 gun frigate was wrecked here in 1782. 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.
