Fortnightly Photo – St Ives, Now and Then

Regular readers will have guessed that I like Cornwall, and St Ives is one of my favourite places to visit.

I found this photo of the beach alongside Smeaton’s Pier in St Ives in a box of old photographic negatives:

Compare this with how it looks today:

Although the angle isn’t quite the same, it’s surprising how little has changed over the years.
