Tehidy, Illogan, Cornwall. Whit Monday, 20th May 1918
Deeds of the property being given by Viscountess Falmouth to Mrs Pendarves in the first stage of the conversion of the property to a sanatorium for the treatment of tuberculosis sufferers by Cornwall County Council. Crowds of people are listening to the presentation on a sunny day. The manor of Tehidy was owned by the Basset family who prospered from mining and their vast estate. The 40 bedroom mansion house was built in 1855 to replace the earlier mansion of 1734. The manor was sold in 1916 ending 700 years of Basset rule. The fire devastated the building two weeks after the hospital opened and it was rebuilt by the County Council. Photographer: Arthur William Jordan
