From the granting of Burgh status by King James I in 1614 through its growth and development as a fashionable seaside resort, the West Cornwall town of Penzance has a proud and distinctive identity. This extraordinary history is embodied in the many fine buildings that have shaped this historic port. Penzance in 50 Buildings examines the proud and distinctive history of the town through a selection of its greatest architectural treasures. From the eccentric early nineteenth-century Egyptian House to the cutting edge Exchange Gallery, opened in 2007, this unique study celebrates the town's architectural heritage in a new and accessible way. Local author and historian Mike Sagar-Fenton guides the reader on a tour of the town's historic buildings and modern architectural marvels.
