Lemon Quay and Lemon Bridge, Truro, Cornwall. 1926
A view of Lemon Quay and Lemon Bridge from Back Quay. The modern public toilets, which opened in September 1925, are visible just beyond the bridge. The workmen, petrol pump and the early motor car on Lemon Quay also appear in TRURI : TRUqbf.24. In this photograph, the Motor Works sign and both its petrol pumps can be seen, together with the Great Western Furniture Warehouse. Only just noticeable on the pavement approaching the parked car on Lemon Quay, is the figure of a one legged man. Limbless men were not an uncommon sight in the towns and villages of Britain right up to 1950s. They represented the wounded of The Great War and, later, The Second World War. A lorry stands on Back Quay on the right hand side of the photograph. Photographer: Arthur William Jordan
