Old Maps of Redruth

Historic Maps of Redruth and the local area.

Only been to Redruth, Cornwall once. Liked it and looked up some photographs one of which happened to be school photograph for Pool Academy ? I was amazed to see that one of the teachers was C Gronow whom I knew way back in the early 70's when we were both at the Manchester College of Art. If anyone should know of his whereabouts now, perhaps they could get in touch with me here?

We lived on Higher Rose Row and could see the back of the church from our back garden. My singing teacher, Donald Broad was the organist there and he organised concerts which were a great introduction to more classical music that widened my knowledge of it. But we left in Coronation Year when I was 14.
