Amazing new photo of the Village Shop unearthed.
Wednesday 1st June 2011
On Friday a gentleman called at our house " Pengillan " and introduced himself to me as David Row of Newquay. He then showed me a press cutting taken in 1962 showing a photograph of Lerryn main Bridge with Pengillan in the background, written on the press cutting was a note saying my father's Grandfather lived here. He then produced a beautiful photograph of the village shop, taken many years ago, perhaps late 1800s? The photograph shows Leonard Rowe the owner of the shop, mother and her father with a horse and cart. The Lady to the right is unknown. I did ask why the "e" was mising from his name, but couldn't establish an answer for that.
Perhaps the History Society could help with more imfomation? To see the photograph go the the Photo Archive and click onto the year 1890s or click on the image below:
