Truro is undoubtedly one of the most attractive cities in Britain. This fascinating collection of over 260 old photographs provides a glimpse into the life of the city from the last century to recent times. The photographs have all come from private collections and the content of the book has been governed by the photographs that the people of Truro have unearthed from their albums and attics. Few, if any, photographs have been published before. This collection includes many of Truro's well-known and beautiful landmarks including elegant Lemon Street, the cathedral, the rivers and the bridges. Throughout the book the people feature as prominently as the townscape of Truro and many images of community events, which were often organised by the People's Palace, are featured. We see images of carnivals, harvest festivals, operatic performances and tea dances. Perhaps, though, it is the pictures of ordinary people working and going about their daily tasks that gives is the beast picture of what life was like in days gone by. Amongst these images are Fred Mitchell's blacksmiths shop, the fire station in St Georges Road and staff at Treleavens catering department. These treasured pictures will bring back memories and will be enjoyed by all who know and love this beautiful Cornish city and would enjoy a trip into its past.
