A pencil drawing of Looe in Cornwall by Claude Buckle

Claude Buckle's pencil drawing of Looe faithfully captures the town's harbour as it looked in the 30's. Claude Buckle painted a number of Cornish villages Looe, Polperro, st Ives, Mevagissy and Portscatho. Looe (Cornish: Logh, meaning deep water inlet) is a small coastal town and fishing port. The town is situated around a small harbour and along the steep-sided valley of the River Looe which flows between East and West Looe to the sea beside a sandy beach. Off shore to the west, opposite the stonier Hannafore beach, lies the picturesque St George's Island, commonly known as Looe Island. Created in 1933.
