This print takes us back in time to the 5th of June, 1915. The setting is the picturesque Trewinnard Court pitch, nestled amidst the charming city of Truro in Cornwall. Here, two esteemed institutions, Truro Cathedral School and Truro High School for Girls, are about to engage in an exhilarating cricket match. The image beautifully captures a pivotal moment before the game commences - the coin toss. As we gaze upon this frozen frame from history, we witness players eagerly awaiting their fate as they huddle around Arthur William Jordan's camera lens. Their youthful enthusiasm and determination are palpable even after more than a century has passed. In this snapshot of sporting heritage, we can almost hear the rustle of cricket whites against lush green grass and feel the anticipation that fills the air. It serves as a testament to both schools' commitment to fostering camaraderie through healthy competition. Beyond its significance as a mere sport event, this photograph symbolizes unity within Cornwall's community spirit. It reminds us that sports have long been cherished not only for their physical prowess but also for their ability to bring people together across generations. Preserved by Royal Cornwall Museum with utmost care and respect for our shared history, this print invites us to reflect on how much has changed since that summer day in 1915 while celebrating timeless values such as teamwork and fair play that continue to resonate today.
