The three-masted French ship Socoa in Falmouth Harbour, Cornwall. 1906

View of the starboard side of the three-masted French steel ship Socoa in Falmouth Harbour with tugs alongside. Note the remains of a wooden warship being broken up in the right foreground. The Socoa was built in 1901 by Chantier and Atelier de St Nazaire at St Nazaire and registered in Bayonne. At 2613 tons gross, she was 282 feet 9 inches x 44 feet x 22 feet 7 inches. She was on passage from Stettin to San Francisco carrying cement to rebuild the city after earthquake damage when she was stranded on Craggan Rock, Cadgwith, on 31st July 1906. She was successfully floated off after jettisoning 50,000 barrels of cement. She was later renamed Thiers. Photographer: Unknown.

Belt of Beaumaris, beached at Mother Ivey's Bay, Trevose Head, St Merryn, Cornwall. Probably 1906 Featured Print

Belt of Beaumaris, beached at Mother Ivey's Bay, Trevose Head, St Merryn, Cornwall. Probably 1906

The ketch Belt of Beaumaris beached at Mother Ivey's Bay. Leaving St Agnes carrying nitrocake, she hit the pier, started to take in water, was deliberately run ashore at Mother Ivey's Bay and wrecked here on 21st April 1906. It is thought that this photograph is probably of the wreck. Looking closely at the ship, it can be seen that the hatch covers have gone and there is no sign of the sails. This could point to the fact that, between the tides, she was able to be accessed to remove equipment etc. The Belt of Beaumaris (ON 939), 68 tons, was built in New Brunswick in 1847. Her master was Foulkes. Merope Rocks can be seen in the background. Photographer: Alexander Old.

Wreck of the barque Andromeda, Killygerran Head, near Portscatho, Gerrans, Cornwall. 12th February 1915

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.
