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

Notes:

Firemen are attempting to pump the flood water from around the Mounts Bay Inn and Harvey's timber yard. The landlord and landlady, Renee Nash, were about the only residents not evacuated from this area, preferring to stay with their means of living and keeping in touch by telephone. There is a plaque on its wall to commemorate the devastating effect this event had on Wherrytown. Flood damage to the neighbouring Coastguard's Row was severe and the houses were demolished. In 2012 this is an Indian restaurant.
