Unknown artist: View of the Falmouth Hotel & Surrounding Country from the Pendennis Castle Drive, tinted lithograph, 24 x 50.8 cms. Lent by The Cornwall Heritage Trust. Loan.
This was taken from Castle Drive, built in 1865, and clearly shows the early structure of the original Falmouth Hotel.
Castle Beach, with its bathing machines, was then considered almost as a private beach for the hotel.
