A photographic postcard of the United Methodist Free Church in Penrose Road, Helston, dated 1920-1930. Also in the photograph are three young lads, centre foreground, a shopkeeper on the left and a car with passengers in the background. Known locally as the "Little Ship", the chapel stood on the junction of Penrose Road and Church Street and was demolished in May 1969. The site is now, in 2017, used as a car park.
