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.

It’s the end of Summer, and it’s going out in style! People¬†were spotted in their bathers at Brighton¬†last week. Though if I were to go to the beach I’d be tempted to take a jumper, just in case.

Just like these two charming chaps from the turn of the century.
