BREATH-TAKING Victorian colour postcards showcasing Cornwall’s charming coastline will leave you yearning for your summer staycation already.
The stunning collection that shows how many of these sights have hardly changed to the present day, includes a view over the picturesque fishing village of Port Isaac from the hit TV show Doc Martin and over Poldark’s rugged Kynance Cove.
Another picture shows boats docked in Padstow Quay whilst others depict the ruins of King Arthur’s castle in Tintagel and charming Falmouth.
Other incredible images take a look over Boscastle’s harbour and peaceful village streets.
A boat can be seen sailing past Bude’s Compass Point with another entering the seaside town’s lock gates.
Popular tourist destinations of Newlyn, Newquay, St Ives and Land’s End also feature in the collection.
The colour postcards were produced using a photochrom method. It is a way of producing colourised photographs from black and white negatives via the direct photographic transfer of a negative onto lithographic printing plates.
