OLD CORNWALL: TINTAGEL

1890 vintage photo of Tintagel, Cornwall and the old Post Office
A few days back I published a post about the Tintagel Old Post Office, Cornwall. Today's photo is a street scene from about 1890 showing the very same Post Office. The actual building dates back to the 14th century. I picked up the photo, with others, a while back at a car boot sale. It's not the clearest of pictures but shows how things once were - a bygone age.
