Went to Penzance last week and bought these postcards

The Scillonian III in Penzance harbour.

Land's End airport

Gyllyngdune Hotel in Falmouth. On the reverse is written 'Where I stayed for a week'. It's been turned into apartments now.

A rather charming shot titled 'Water Babies, Newlyn Cornwall'.

None of the above cards has a date.

Another wonderful photograph. Titled 'Cornish Coastguard'.

The last one has a date, 1940 and the photographer was Humphrey Spender.

Interesting guy. His Wiki page is here.

  1. Water Babies: Further research yielded another image taken at that time. Am able to attribute the photo to Francis Frith and date it to 1893.

    One of the negatives must have been reversed (the postcard?)
