EDITORS COMMENTS
The print titled "". . . Meanwhile, in Britain, the entire population faced by the threat of invasion, has been flung into a state of complete panic. . " captures the essence of wartime Britain during World War II. Created by Pont (Graham Laidler) in 1940, this lithograph depicts a scene filled with chaos and anxiety. In this illustration for The British Carry On, Pont portrays a bustling street cafe where people gather to seek solace amidst the turmoil. The artist's satirical style adds a touch of humor to an otherwise tense situation. As bombs drop and sirens wail outside, patrons attempt to find calm and serenity within these walls. The image reflects the resilience and spirit of the British people as they face imminent danger. Despite being on the brink of invasion, they refuse to succumb entirely to fear. Instead, they choose moments like these - gathering in pubs and cafes - to find solace among friends and loved ones. Pont's artwork serves as a reminder that even in times of great adversity, humanity seeks comfort in familiar places. It encapsulates not only the historical significance but also highlights how humor can be used as a coping mechanism during challenging times. This photograph print is an invaluable piece that transports us back to one of history's darkest periods while simultaneously reminding us of our ability to persevere through unity and laughter.
