Street view, The Lizard, Landewednack, Cornwall. Early 1900s
Taken from The Square by Hills Hotel looking towards the post office on Pentreath Lane. The image shows the Great Western Railway parcels receiving office, serpentine workshops and thatched buildings. A man in the doorway of H.E. Roberts serpentine workshop is possibly J. Roberts (one of that name listed in Kellys Directory in 1902). There were three Roberts working in Lizard Village in the early 1900s. In the background are four children outside the post office near to the village pump. The Lizard was the terminus of the first railway operated motor bus service in Great Britain when a service was introduced by the Great Western Railway on 17th August 1903. The service proved so successful that it was extended to other part of Cornwall and Devon. Photographer: Arthur Philp
