A multi view Argall's Series postcard of Grylls Monument and Meneage Street, Helston, about 1904. Grylls Monument was erected by public subscription in 1834 to the memory of Humphrey Millet Grylls. A man and a boy can be seen together with ironmongery outside a property to the right. The boy is named as John Rogers. In Meneage Street, a group of children can be seen standing in the road and shopkeepers are standing in doorways. The postcard is dated 7th July 1911, however the images are known to have been taken at least 7 years earlier.
