Trengrouse Way, Helston, about 1950. A row of 5 cottages in Meneage Street were demolished in 1946 to provide access for this new road and Trengrouse Way was built in 1947. The car parked by the sheds in the far left of the photograph is believed to have been owned by Harry Ferris. He used the sheds to store stock for the family shop, E Ferris, a greengrocers and general store, at 70 Meneage Street. The car parked on the road to the bottom left bears the registration number ERL 59. A number of cars are parked in Trengrouse Way car park which opened in May 1948. Some of the new prefabricated Cornish unit houses in Trevenen Road can be seen above the car park. Meneage Hospital, the former workhouse, is on the right hand side. The building has since been converted into residential accommodation. The new electric street lighting seen in this image was introduced to Helston shortly before the photograph was taken.
