32 Black and White Photos of Cornwall in the Early 1970s

Cornwall is a historic county and ceremonial county in South West England. It is recognized as one of the Celtic nations, and is the homeland of the Cornish people. Cornwall is bordered to the north and west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by the English Channel, and to the east by the county of Devon, with the River Tamar forming the border between them. Cornwall forms the westernmost part of the South West Peninsula of the island of Great Britain. The administrative centre of Cornwall is Truro, its only city.

Cornwall is noted for its geology and coastal scenery. A large part of the Cornubian batholith is within Cornwall. The north coast has many cliffs where exposed geological formations are studied. The area is noted for its wild moorland landscapes, its long and varied coastline, its attractive villages, its many place-names derived from the Cornish language, and its very mild climate. Extensive stretches of Cornwall's coastline, and Bodmin Moor, are protected as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

These black and white photos were taken by Norman Craig that show life of Cornwall in 1973.

  1. "Dog in a Rover" is actually "Dog in a Sunbeam Rapier".
    It's a Series IV or V - can't tell which without seeing the little badge at the bottom of the front wing, which either read "Series IV" or "1725" (if a Series V)

  2. Blue Aquarius were a short-lived US funk band from 1972-1974 - this must have been their only overseas tour.
