A personal view
|St Ives in the 1920s|
|Many thanks to Irene Kelsall for sending me these photos. She tells me that all her mother's family (9 in all) were born in Oakland Terrace, St Ives. Most of them married and lived in the surounding villages. Their family name was Abraham. On the death of the youngest daughter, Joan, the photos were passed on to Irene. All the girls worked in the egg factory, one worked in the Mill, two were in the Land Army on Chivers Farm. She remembers visiting her great grand mother who lived to the age of 99.

|The Waits and Norris Library and Museum.|
|The bridge before the top storey of the chapel was removed in 1930.|
|A pity you can't hire boats like this nowadays!|
|The Waits, long before there was any idea of a flood prevention scheme.|
|Bridge Street. The modern looking shop on the left, with the impressive plate glass windows, was Kiddles furniture store.
