EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from 1904 showcases the picturesque Fowey harbour in Cornwall. The view, captured from Hall walk, offers a stunning perspective of the river with the china clay docks and railway serving as a backdrop. In the middle left of the picture, one can spot Caffa Mill inlet, while on the right side lies Bodinnick, partially visible. However, what truly steals the spotlight are two majestic barquentines moored in the foreground. The vessel with its gleaming white hull is none other than Nordstjernan of Fiskebackskil, Sweden. Its elegant presence adds an international touch to this charming Cornish scene. This photograph was skillfully taken by renowned photographer Herbert Hughes. As you gaze at this image, you can almost feel yourself transported back in time to an era when sailing ships dominated these waters and houses dotted along the shoreline added character to coastal towns like Fowey. It serves as a reminder of Cornwall's rich maritime history and its deep connection with seafaring traditions. This print captures not just a moment frozen in time but also evokes a sense of nostalgia for simpler days gone by. Whether you have personal ties to Cornwall or simply appreciate its natural beauty and maritime heritage, this image will surely make a wonderful addition to any collection or display space.
