However, I used this photo today to compare with how the same scene looked way back in 1875. The main difference being the railway lines stretching onto the middle pier. For a period Newquay was used to export china clay.. The trains enabled workers to load the sailing ships direct from the railway - now only the pier remains.
Today Newquay is a busy holiday resort, known for its surfing and numerous sandy beaches.
