EDITORS COMMENTS
Step back in time with this print of High Street, Falmouth, Cornwall, taken in the early 1900s by the talented photographer Arthur Philp. The image transports us to a bustling era where life was simpler yet filled with charm and character. In this snapshot of history, we are greeted by a vibrant scene that showcases the essence of daily life on High Street. Cornish locals can be seen going about their day, each contributing to the tapestry of this picturesque town. The street is alive with activity as dogs wag their tails and children playfully run around. Our eyes are drawn to George Eustice Stationers and the Post Office at No. 4, standing proudly amidst its neighboring shops. This establishment served as a hub for communication and stationery needs during those times when technology had not yet dominated our lives. The presence of a bicycle hints at an emerging mode of transportation while hats adorn heads adding elegance to everyday attire. A donkey-drawn cart adds rustic charm to the scene, reminding us of simpler means used for transporting goods. This remarkable photograph captures an era long gone but forever preserved within these frames. It serves as a testament to Falmouth's rich history and invites us to reflect upon how much has changed since then.
