The cathedral city of Truro is a major administrative and commercial centre in Cornwall. Historically, it grew in prosperity as an inland port and stannary town, and its Georgian and Victorian buildings demonstrate its wealth in this period. Other industries developed around the area at this time, and the town gained city status.
Lost Truro presents a portrait of this corner of Cornwall over the last century to recent decades that has radically changed or disappeared today, showing not only industries and buildings that have gone but also people and street scenes, many popular places of entertainment and much more. This fascinating photographic history of lost Truro will appeal to all those who live in the area or know it well, as well as those who remember it from previous decades.
