"Martial Law!" - soldiers examining all traffic during the Great War 1914-18, in Monument Road, Helston. Taken in 1915, one soldier is ahead of a car with his gun raised and the other is talking to the occupants of the car. Note the high kerb on the left-hand side of the road, and a cobbled area, possibly formerly a kennel.
