Polruan from Fowey - Early 1900s

Polruan from Fowey - Early 1900s

Looking across the river from Fowey towards Polruan with a fine looking ship heading for port.

This photo was taken from a postcard that was dated 1909 but I think the date it was taken may have been somewhat earlier.

Whilst Polruan has hardly become built up over the intervening years there has definietly been some building activity over there. If you look at this recent photo you can definitely see there were less buildings on the crest of the hill: http://old.cornwalls.co.uk/photos/polruan-fowey-view-4204.htm
