This week's Step Back in Time feature takes a look back at the carnival season circa 1974.

After such a rough year or so, we could all do with a little bit of carnival atmosphere to get us smiling again and looking forward to the better days that are on their way.

The images, all courtesy of Falmouth History Archive, include Penryn Carnival, Ponsanooth Carnival and Falmouth and Penryn Rotary Fair.

We've also featured some old snaps of business owners, sailing champs and the Devon versus Cornwall Handicap Games.
