Polurrian Hotel, Mullion, Cornwall. 1899

A view of Cathedral Rock, Polurrian Cove, Polurrian Hotel and the coast looking north. The hotel was built in 1890 as a railway hotel to serve the now defunct Helston branch line. Perched on the edge of a cliff on the Lizard Peninsula, it was an impressive building appealing to distinguished guests. Guglielmo Marconi stayed at the hotel in 1901 while sending the first ever transatlantic radio messages from nearby Poldhu Cove. In 1909 a fire devastated the hotel, leaving it in ruins. Three years later, a new hotel was opened on the site. The only parts of the original structure that remained were the terraces and steps near to the tennis courts. Photographer: Herbert Hughes
