Penlee House Gallery & Museum, Penzance
The artistic heart of West Cornwall's history

Notes:

Left to right: Post Office built in 1863; Star Inn; Symons is on the corner of New Street; York and Baird 1881-1896; Market House with a pennant flying above the dome; Humphry Davy statue; Oppenheim's Furniture Market with probably the oldest chimney in Penzance in 2013; Henry Joseph'e pawnbrokers which soon became the premises for the Gibson family photography business; James Henry Thomas the Tobacconist; Samuel Mears and Sons, boot manufacturers; Bolitho Bank built in 1834. The absence of traffic, including the horse buses would suggest this is a sunny Sunday morning. Gas lamps were lit at dusk.
