Porthlow Farmhouse Old & New.
It was taken in 1908/9. Front left is Norah Mumford, ( Stan Phillips' mum & Charlie Mudges' aunt ) The Postman is Mr Toomey ( who I think married an O'Grady ). Tall girl Winnie Curtis was the daughter of a Coastguard. Mavis and Frank on the right were Woodcocks from Seaways. There may be more names to come later.....Robin Mawer

An old view from Mount Todden Farm with a young Basil Guy picking Princeps and a present day one from the exact same spot which shows how the bank at the top of Pelistry Beach has receded and the wall at the bottom of the field has been rebuilt a lot closer in as the cliff was being eroded destroying the original wall.....Robin Mawer

Work on Friday continuing at Porthcressa to connect the Superfast Broadband cable from the Cable Ship Resolute to the cable that has already been put in from the Telegraph exchange to Porthcressa. The cable has been laid in a coil under the sand on the beach with enough spare in case of future problems for reconnection if needed. The last photo shows the four inner strands which each enclose one fibre optic strand which is less than the thickness of a human hair.
