Beating the Bounds, The Green, Truro, Cornwall. 4th October 1912

A large crowd of boys watching the Beating of Truro City land bounds on the Green. Beating the Bounds is an old tradition whereby officials of the parish share their knowledge of the boundaries of their territory. Sometimes prayers would be offered for the protection of the fields and land, and to bless the land to ensure fertility. Photographer: Arthur Willliam Jordan
