My photo postcard of Truro, the capital of Cornwall

Passing through Truro, the capital city of Cornwall, en route for Falmouth. Truro isn’t simply a country town, it’s the centre of the Cornish peninsular. Unlike most other country towns in England, everyone in Cornwall passes through Truro once in a while either for work and business or for schools and hospitals. Alighting from the train from London Paddington, the effect of the Gulf Stream on the climate is striking; the  red arms of the semaphore railway signals look like something which Londoners only see now on a model railway. Truro’s cathedral is a relatively recent Gothic revival design which towers over the town. Cats don’t have a hard time in this town.
