Photographic postcard of Helston cattle market on market day, about 1920. The weekly cattle market, which was traditionally held on a Monday, was one of the biggest agricultural markets in the area. In addition to providing the opportunity to buy and sell livestock, it was also an important social event for farmers and their families. Photograph by A H Hawke of Helston.
