Old Maps of Falmouth

Historic Maps of Falmouth and the local area.

I believe that my grandparents, Walter Otho Pearce and Liley Pearce, may be two of the people in this photo. My grandfather had a corn and forage shop and store just by Jacobs ladder at that time. My grandparents would have been quite newly married and lived nearby when the photo was taken.

My wife and I had an holiday in Falmouth, a flat overlooking the docks area. We would travel all around the area, we thought it was a beautiful place. We visited the Brewis family. Peter Brewis was the site agent on a site I worked on in the Midlands. I often wonder how the family is now, well I hope.
