This book of over 230 old photographs features the parish of Camborne and district from Victorian times to more recent scenes. The work of many local talented Camborne photographers is featured in this book including W.J. Bennetts, J.C. Burrow, E.A. Bragg, E.J. Champion and W.J. Sandry.

The Camborne of today is essentially the product of a thriving nineteenth-century mining community in the heart of the chief industrial area of west Cornwall. Some of Camborne's important industries are featured in the book including the great Dolcoath Mine and Holman Brothers Ltd. The parish is replete with places of worship of every size, type and denomination which are also documented, as well as memorable events, formative years at school and a community in moments of leisure. Some of Camborne's best known individuals are captured too, including William Quintrell the Camborne poet, Organ Joe a familiar character in Edwardian Camborne and Mr A. Edward Dunn, the Liberal candidate in the 1906 General Election.

This book will be enjoyed by all who know and love this Cornish town and would enjoy a trip into its past.
