The 90s were an iconic decade for many and for our beautiful county in particular.

Digging through the archives from 1990 to 1999, we found a wealth of images that show the people of Cornwall at work and play, iconic buildings and high-profile visitors, and people from our county celebrating their achievements.

We can see photos of the world famous Eden project being built in Bodelva, Par in 1998 and what it looked like when completed.

Hundreds of people gathered across the county to view the last total solar eclipse of the century in 1999. It is said that the only part of mainland Britain to witness totality – the complete extinction of the sun by the moon – was right here in Cornwall.

The Prince of Wales, Prince Charles, visited the people of Truro when the new Cornwall Hall opened in 1997.

Another member of the royal family also came to visit in 1998. The Princess Royal, Anne, traveled to Cornwall to attend the National Youth Sailing Championships at Looe.

People partied on New Years Eve in Looe in 1998, thousands of music lovers gathered in Newquay to listen to the Radio 1 Road Show in 1999 and people in costume marched through the streets to celebrate our unique festivals of Cornwall.
