The Ringers of Launcells Tower, Frederick Smallfield (1829-1915) Featured November Image

The Ringers of Launcells Tower, Frederick Smallfield (1829-1915)

Oil on canvas, English School, 1887. This painting was inspired by the poem 'The Ringers of Launcells Tower' by Rev. R.S. Hawker of Morwenstow in his book 'Cornish Ballads and Other Poems'. In this poem, the bell ringers who rang at the accession of George III in 1760 were still alive to ring at his golden jubilee in 1810. The church of Launcells is midway between Stratton and Bude. The picture was painted 77 years after George III's golden jubilee and so is a total reconstruction. There is, therefore, no possibility that the figures are actual portraits of the 1810 ringers. Nevertheless, Smallfield had visited the church tower before he started the painting but made certain alterations to the layout for artistic reasons. He also studied the bell ringers at his local church in Willesden, north west London, to get the action and the angle of the ropes correct. A watercolour version of this painting was exhibited at the Watercolour Society in 1878. Frederick Smallfield studied at the Royal Academy and subsequently exhibited there several times. He lived for most of his life in London and at Lee-on-Solent in Hampshire

A close up view of Goonvrea House, Perranarworthal, Cornwall. December 1924

A general close up view of the front of Goonvrea House with the conservatory to the left. In 1980, Rex Barratt writes in his book, Stately Homes in and Around Truro, "Goonvrea, probably built by the Fox family of Falmouth and later owned and occupied by Sir Frederick Martin Williams, M.P. for Truro (1865-1878), who was a director of the Perran Iron Foundry and the first Provincial Grand Master of Mark Masons of Cornwall. Later owners were J.P. Paull, and W.E. Harris, who was there in 1939. During the last war it was utilised by U.S. troops and is now a well-known hotel". The hotel was owned by Tony and Joyce Webb and is reported to have been devastated by fire in 1982. By the early 1990s new build houses were erected on the site. The stable block remained standing and has since been converted into houses. Photographer Arthur William Jordan

Coombe, Cowlands Creek, Kea, Cornwall. Between 1908 and 1924 Featured November Image

Coombe, Cowlands Creek, Kea, Cornwall. Between 1908 and 1924

A view of the Reading Room and cottages at Coombe, on Cowlands Creek. A lady looks out from the front door of Holly Cottage. The Reading Room, the timber building with a corrugated galvanised steel roof, was built in 1908 and looks recently constructed. The newspapers for the Reading Room were provided by Miss Daubuz of Killiow Estate. The two thatched cottages to the left of Holly Cottage, Moor Close and Bunny Thatch, were demolished between the First and Second World Wars. The photograph was taken before construction of the road in 1924. Photographer: Arthur William Jordan
