A photographic postcard of Penhellaz Hill, Helston, leading down from Cross Street to St Johns, circa 1910. The photograph shows a farm at the end of Lower Road, near the site of Turnpike on Penzance Road, and houses which have since been demolished. The old lodging house, Tossell's, can also be seen. Tossell's was known colloquially as "The Bug 'n' Flea". A horse and cart are pictured in the foreground. Photograph by A H Hawke, Helston.
