A photographic postcard of Church Street, Helston. Issued by Hosking and Blakeley of Penzance, it shows a group of children standing in the foregound next to two carts and a couple of people standing outside the New Inn public house. The signage for the public house records the proprietor as E Lancaster which dates the original photograph as having been taken sometime between 1902 and 1906. The message on the back reads "Henry VIII's Commissioner was killed by the Helston mob, just at this corner! The big house on the left is the "Waifs and Strays Home".
