Old Cottage Alverton

This picture was sent to my grandfather on 21/11/1913 from a Mr. F Nicholls of 21 Jubilee Road, Newquay. He encloses a copy of the photograph and asks my grandfather to oblige him by saying whose birthplace it was.... do we know?

      Hawke s Farm has a good deal of stories set out on my album of pictures old and new; Lord Exmouth was probably the most well known person to have lived there as a youngster.

      oh yes! nice to see Hawke s Farm... good picture. Amazing how much thought went into the width of the road so many years before motor cats and lorries

      I frequently remind my Devonian mother-in-law that the first Lord Exmouth was a Penzance man!
