Fore Street, Probus, Cornwall. Around 1913 Featured Probus Print

Fore Street, Probus, Cornwall. Around 1913

A view looking east towards the centre of the village. Truck Hill is behind the camera. A number of people pose for the camera including two men from Thomas J. Teague's, Monumental Mason's marble works on the left, a man on a horse and cart, two boys and young child. Further up the road can be seen two ladies and two men in the distance. The lady standing in the centre of the road looking towards the camera has the same hairstyle, with a bow, and clothing as the lady with two children outside the Cornwall County Police station in photograph TRURI : PROct.6. She is also standing in the road outside the Police Constable's home/station in this photograph which gives reason to believe that she is the village constable's wife, Maud Prust (nee Westcott), aged 26. The young child standing with the two young lads is dressed, except for the bonnet, in very similar clothing to the standing child in TRURI : PROct.6. Given the body language of the lady and the two young lads, it would suggest that the child is under their care, with the lady keeping an eye on her child and the lads and not posing for the photograph. Given the research conducted for photograph TRURI : PROct.6, this would put the date of the photograph around 1913. Photographer: Samuel John Govier
