EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph, titled "Friar Gate Derby, 1941" captures a poignant moment in history during the Second World War. The image showcases the exterior of 115A-117A Friar Gate in Derby, where three distinct establishments coexist amidst the chaos of war. In this snapshot frozen in time, we witness Wendy's shop (115A), The Berlitz School of Languages (116), and The Friary Salon (117) standing side by side. However, what truly draws our attention is the tape meticulously applied to one of the shop windows. This simple yet powerful act serves as a visual reminder of the constant danger faced by civilians during air raids. The photographer, George Bernard Mason, skillfully captures not only the architectural beauty of these Georgian buildings but also conveys a sense of caution and protection that permeated everyday life at that time. It is through images like this that we gain insight into how communities adapted to survive and protect themselves from potential harm. As we delve into this historical artifact, let us remember those who lived through such perilous times and honor their resilience. This photograph stands as a testament to human strength amidst adversity while reminding us never to take our safety for granted.
