The Bridge, Penryn, Cornwall. 1900s Featured Print

The Bridge, Penryn, Cornwall. 1900s

A crowd of people on the Commercial Road junction with Quay Hill, Penryn, looking west. The bridge is behind the crowd. The harbour office building is on the left, sporting a number of notices. The notice to the left of the harbour office window behind the gas lamp reads 'Borough of Penryn. Penryn Harbour ordinances. 1900' The large advertising notice on the road side of the office reads 'UGLOW. PIANOS 2/- (Two shillings) and 1/- (One shilling) ORGANS. FALMOUTH & ST AUSTELL'. The diagonal wording across the middle reads 'WHY BE WITHOUT ONE'. There are fifty three people posing for the camera. The majority are men and boys but four girls have managed to join the crowd. A top sail schooner is alongside the Quay. Photographer: Arthur William Jordan.

St Giles Fair, Oxford CC49_00539 Featured Print

St Giles Fair, Oxford CC49_00539

St Gilesa€™ Fair, Oxford, Oxfordshire, September 1905.
Photographed by Henry William Taunt (1842-€“1922) on silver gelatin glass plate negative. Despite the bustle of St Giles'€™s Fair, the photographer Henry Taunt has inevitably attracted attention perched, presumably on a stepladder, above the fairgoers. Employees of the ornately decorated Taylor'€™s Royal Electric Coliseum are drumming up business, and a Fried Fish and Chip Potato wagon stands beside the gas lamp. St Giles'€™s Fair had evolved from a parish wake first mentioned in 1624 into a major amusement fair with special trains bringing visitors from far afield. Taunt photographed the fair from the late 1860s, hoping of course to sell many images, and also out of personal interest.

RNLI lifeboat Arab I at the quay, Padstow, Cornwall. 1883-1900 Featured Print

RNLI lifeboat Arab I at the quay, Padstow, Cornwall. 1883-1900

The lifeboat Arab I under sail off the quay at Padstow with the railway yards in the background. The lifeboat has a full compliment of women and children passengers with a good sized crowd of onlookers on the quay. It is noticeable that the crew of the Lifeboat are wearing cork life jackets, however, the passengers are not. RNLI Arab I (34 foot x 8 foot) was a gift from Mr R.A.B. Preston who had been saved from his yacht Arab. She was wrecked on 11th April 1900, without any loss of crew, while assisting the Lowestoft trawler Peace and Plenty. The steam lifeboat, James Stevens No 4, was also lost on the same night, together with eight members of her crew. Three crew members of the Peace and Plenty also lost their lives. Photographer: Unknown.
