Coinage Hall

By TrevBatWCC    
After my quick trip around Newquay, it was back to the hotel for our coach outing to Truro. At the eastern end of Boscawen Street, one of the main shopping areas in Truro is this, the imposing Coinage Hall. The current building was built as the Cornish Bank in 1848 on the site of the old Coinage Hall where twice yearly tin was brought here to be assayed and taxed. Today the Coinage Hall is home to a small number of retail outlets. Standing in front of the Hall is the War Memorial, with a soldier waving his helmet in the air, as if to say how proud he is to have left behind the trenches and returned to his beloved Truro.

V2 has appeared since I first looked - I like its sense of bustle and business, and the lady's very purposeful stride.

Very reminiscent of the Moot Hall in Keswick. Like the detail and textures, Trev.

Two great shots depicting the busy area of this fine Devon city. What a pity the Lakeland shop sign catches the eye. Could it not be removed?
