Photographic postcard of The Devil's Frying Pan, Cadgwith. Taken around 1948, the archway was the entrance to a cave which collapsed hundreds of years ago. Formed through coastal erosion, this geological feature is said to have earned it's name because in rough weather the sea crashes so violently around the cave that the central boulder is said to resemble an egg frying in a pan.
