Uploader's Comments

This is the eastern end of Poldhu, which means "black pool" in Cornish, and lies on the Lizard Peninsular 2km north of Mullion. In December 1901, on the cliffs above, Guglielmo Marconi conducted his famous experiment in December 1901, sending the first transatlantic radio message to Marconi's receiving station on Signal Hill, St. John's, Newfoundland.
