View from Porthminster beach to St Ives, Cornwall. 1903 Featured St Ives Print

View from Porthminster beach to St Ives, Cornwall. 1903

View from Porthminster beach looking towards St Ives railway station on the left of the picture and the harbour in the distance. A fishing lugger is leaving harbour beating out to sea under a stiff breeze. Note the capstans used for hauling fishing vessels up the beach. Large pieces of timber called capstan arms would be inserted into the square holes at the top. Rope attached to the vessels bow would be passed around the capstan drum and men would push the arms around to haul the boat up the beach. This would normally be done at high tide to get the boat to the highest point of the beach and safely away from any heavy seas crashing onto the beach. Photographer: John Charles Burrow

Fishing boats in harbour St Ives harbour, Cornwall. Around 1925

Boat registrations: SS67, SS154, 69SS, SS75. Glass lantern slide from a lecture, entitled Some Historic Cornish Beauty Spots, given by Cornishman and amateur photographer, Major Arthur William Gill, in around 1925. He was well known in Cornwall and elsewhere during the 1920s and 1930s for his presentations of stills and cine film to many groups including The Royal Institution of Cornwall, Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society and the London Cornish Society. The quarter plate slides which he took prolifically with his ordinary camera are, in many cases, colour. These were painted by his own hand to great effect
