EDITORS COMMENTS
Step back in time to the quaint coastal village of Fowey, Cornwall in 1914 with this print of 'Ye Old Lugger'. The image captures a moment frozen in history, showcasing the iconic pub with its charming hanging sign proudly displaying its establishment date as 1633 and the name of proprietor Robert Varco. In front of the pub, we see a delightful sight - the Truro, St Austell and Fowey coach parked outside. This nostalgic scene evokes images of bustling activity as travelers stop by for refreshments or perhaps to rest their weary feet after a long journey. The presence of luggage and baskets hints at the comings and goings that were once commonplace at this popular public house. A closer look reveals another intriguing detail on the lower sign: Burton Ales always on draught! Additionally, it proudly declares itself as the sole agent for Anglo-Bavarian ales and stout. It's fascinating to imagine families being supplied with small casks and bottles filled with these beloved beverages. The photographer Herbert Hughes skillfully captures not only these historical details but also showcases the charm of Cornish architecture. Cobbled streets wind their way past inviting buildings while pedestrians stroll along well-worn pavements. This remarkable print from Royal Cornwall Museum transports us back to an era where life moved at a slower pace, yet community spirit thrived within establishments like Ye Old Lugger.
