This print takes us back in time to Fowey harbour in Cornwall, 1914. The image captures a picturesque view from Fowey Town Quay, offering a glimpse into the bustling maritime activity of the era. As our eyes wander across the frame, we are greeted by an enchanting sight: row upon row of traditional Cornish boats gently bobbing on the tranquil waters. The quaint houses lining the harbor add a touch of charm to this already idyllic scene. Their colorful facades and intricate architecture speak volumes about the rich history and character of this coastal town. Standing tall amidst it all is a majestic flagpole proudly displaying its emblem, fluttering gracefully in the sea breeze. Intriguingly, our attention is drawn towards Bodinnick on the opposite side of the harbor. Here lies SS Alexy, moored just below Bodinnick's shoreline - an impressive vessel that undoubtedly played a significant role in local trade and transportation during those times. Photographer Herbert Hughes has skillfully captured not only a moment frozen in time but also an essence that transcends generations. This photograph transports us back to an era where life seemed simpler yet filled with adventure and discovery. As we admire this remarkable piece from Royal Cornwall Museum's collection, let us appreciate how it serves as both a window into history and a testament to human ingenuity and resilience against time's relentless march forward.
