Preserving the Legacy - A Glimpse into Cornwall's Hockey History

EDITORS COMMENTS
This photo print, taken around 1900 by an unknown photographer, transports us back in time to witness the spirited camaraderie of a remarkable ladies' hockey team from Cornwall. Standing proudly before a rustic Cornish Hedge, these trailblazing athletes exude determination and passion for their beloved sport. Clad in traditional Cornish attire, each player dons a straw boater hat with unwavering pride. Their ties neatly fastened and hockey sticks firmly grasped reflect their commitment to both style and skill. With every detail meticulously captured, this snapshot immortalizes not only the players but also the essence of early women's sports in Cornwall. The whistle held tightly by one of the team members symbolizes authority and fair play—a testament to their dedication to upholding sporting values even amidst societal challenges faced by women at that time. As we gaze upon this image, we are reminded of the indomitable spirit that propelled these pioneering athletes forward. This print is more than just a historical artifact; it serves as a visual tribute to those who paved the way for future generations of female athletes. It encapsulates resilience, unity, and empowerment—qualities that continue to resonate today. Displayed within Royal Cornwall Museum's cherished collection, this photograph invites us all to celebrate our shared heritage while honoring those who defied conventions through their love for sports—an enduring legacy worth cherishing for years to come.
