The St Peter's Tide parade, Porthleven, about 1910. The photograph has been taken from the grounds of the Coastguard Cottages and the parade is walking along Peverell Terrace. Fore Street and the Church can be seen in the background as can the boatsheds on the harbour head. Named after St Peter, the patron saint of fishing, local churches came together on this day to march through the village and ended with a treat of tea and saffron buns.
