This picture shows the street as I remember it aged four. The building on the right was the office of my father's legal practice (Pomery and Gill) and opposite was the market. As a child I loved the Saturday market, when the boiled sweets of all descriptions were on sale. I also loved the stone cows' heads across the facade. My family lived at "Bosvenna" in Priory Road until the late sixties. My father Ernest Gill was Town Clerk for 26 years, and was made Mayor on his retirement from that position. Since moving to Australia in 1963 I have been closely involved in the South Australian Cornish Association, being a past President.
