Cattle Market Cornwall
Now here’s another scene from the past
Early 1900’s I believe
Maybe it was in Truro
The Cattle market image we retrieve
You’ll notice the gentlemen Farmers
All dressed in Suits and Straw Hat
There to see what interests them
Buying and selling cattle and prices that
Will rise or fall at the mallet
Of the Market Auctioneer
A very busy occasion
Because the wives and families are here
Ladies dressed in their finery
And with their children too
Watching just what happens
With all these animals to view
It was something that interested me
When I were but a lad
Going to the local Cattle Market
And see all the animals they had
For I was brought up a City boy
Along with my Sister and Brothers
And this was a chance to see Cattle and Pigs
And many various others
A sight we never see today
Bought or sold on Phone or online
For we now live in a technical World
Which suits the majority of people fine
