original Falmouth School of Art in Passmore Edwards Free Library - 1894l

Falmouth School of Art was originally located at the Passmore Edwards Free Library in the Moor and was later moved to Arwenack Avenue, the foundation stone was laid on 19th August 1901.

In the 1950s the school moved to 'Rosehill' in Woodlane where it began to flourish in it's surroundings.

In 1969 Falmouth High Street was just as busy as it is today and not much has changed since.

The cafes had a certain quality of emptiness about them, this one was on The Moor (the corner of Quarry Hill and Berkeley Vale)

Carol played a part in my film as a star struck student chased by Jonathan Pike (Jonathan Pike's Website) who eventually rewarded her with a sizable chocolate bar 'Bunch'.
