A distant view of two Marconi wireless towers and the Poldhu Hotel, Poldhu, Mullion, Cornwall. Probably 1920s

A distant view of a two-masted arrangement of 200ft Marconi towers at Poldhu. Originally recorded as the two-masted tower installation used by Guglielmo Marconi to transmit the first transatlantic radio message on 12th December 1901, it is now thought that this photograph may show a later two-masted tubular steel arrangement dating from around 1923-1924. Marconi's original masts were damaged by storms and replaced by a four lattice wooden design by early 1902. Poldhu was taken over by the Royal Navy after the First World War and continued to operate as a research station until 1933, after which the site was cleared and donated to the National Trust. A granite monument erected in 1937 by the Marconi Company now stands on the site. The photograph is taken from Poldhu Cove and a number of people can be seen on the beach. Photographer: Arthur William Jordan.
