|Upper Lemon Street, Truro 1890|
It wasn't snowing though when I snapped the photo below of the same view today. The impressive granite faced houses look very much the same - though many are offices today.
In the background you might just be able to make out a tall monument. This is a statue of Richard Lander, following his death in 1834. He was one of the Lander brothers, Richard and John, who discovered the source of the River Niger in 1827.
It's also interesting that the land for the monument was donated by Sir Charles Lemon - note the name of the road in the photos.
