Barrage Balloons over Falmouth, Cornwall. 1942

A view from a field of eleven or more barrage balloons tethered over Falmouth. Barrage balloons were bags partially filled with hydrogen and attached to a steel cable anchored either to the ground or large vehicles. The balloon could be raised or lowered to the desired altitude by means of a winch. The balloons denied low level airspace to enemy aircraft thereby decreasing their bombing accuracy and the risk of dive bombing. Photographer: Unknown

The 'Obby 'Oss, South Quay, Padstow, Cornwall. 1966

The May Day 'Obby 'Oss festival with the parade moving through the town. 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: Charles Woolf

The Barbican, Lanhydrock, Cornwall. May 1930

The gatehouse known as 'The Barbican' at Lanhydrock. The 17th century gatehouse predates the house which was largely rebuilt after a devastating fire in 1881. Built in the 17th century for the Robartes family, all that remained of the house after the fire was the north wing, the entrance porch and gatehouse. The house was given to the National Trust in 1953. Photographer: Herbert Hughes
