Hayle. St Ives in the distance', c1860. West Cornwall Railway, later part of the Great Western Railway (GWR). The boom time for the harbour and effectively the birth of the town came in the first half of the 19th century when Hayle became synonymous with mining-related industries and, above all, Harvey's. Harvey & Co. employed 1,000 men and exported Cornish beam engines all over the world. Illustration by RT Pentreath for 'Views of Devonshire and Cornwall' by Henry Besley. (Exeter, c1860). Engraving.
