An Argall's Series postcard looking down Wendron Street, Helston, towards Coinagehall Street, taken in the early 1900s. A group of people can be seen standing outside Helston Public Rooms on the right hand side. Built in 1889, it is now, in 2017, known as the Godolphin Club. Number 20 Wendron Street, with the thatched roof, is next door. This was the former home of the builder, Mr W Eva and was demolished the early 1900s. The second house down on the left hand side was once occupied by C A Johns, the second Master of Helston Grammar School.
