The 'Obby 'Oss, Harbour, Padstow, Cornwall. About 1920

The 'Obby 'Oss with band and sailors on the quay, Padstow. The 'Obby 'Oss is an integral part of the May Day celebrations in Padstow. Each year, on the 1st May, the town is decorated in greenery and the 'Oss (horse) parades the streets, followed by a 'teaser' who holds a padded bat. The procession is accompanied by accordions, drums and singing. The fearsome 'Oss wears a large mask and swirling skirts under which he tries to catch young maids. Photographer: Unknown

View from Porthminster beach to St Ives, Cornwall. 1903 Featured 12 May 2016 Print

View from Porthminster beach to St Ives, Cornwall. 1903

View from Porthminster beach looking towards St Ives railway station on the left of the picture and the harbour in the distance. A fishing lugger is leaving harbour beating out to sea under a stiff breeze. Note the capstans used for hauling fishing vessels up the beach. Large pieces of timber called capstan arms would be inserted into the square holes at the top. Rope attached to the vessels bow would be passed around the capstan drum and men would push the arms around to haul the boat up the beach. This would normally be done at high tide to get the boat to the highest point of the beach and safely away from any heavy seas crashing onto the beach. Photographer: John Charles Burrow
