EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the early 1960s, capturing the essence of Market Street in Torquay. The focal point of this nostalgic scene is the Manor Inn, standing proudly at the bottom end of the street. Its charming exterior exudes a sense of warmth and hospitality, inviting passersby to step inside for a refreshing drink or lively conversation. Adjacent to the Manor Inn are C & F Watt shops, their storefronts displaying an array of goods that would have enticed shoppers during this era. From clothing to household items, these bustling establishments were integral parts of daily life in Torquay. The image also offers glimpses into transportation and commerce from that time period. A variety of cars line the road, showcasing classic designs that transport us back to a bygone era. Garages dotting the street remind us of a time when personal automobiles were becoming more prevalent. As we gaze upon this snapshot frozen in time, we can't help but feel a wave of nostalgia for an England long past. It serves as a reminder not only of how much has changed over half a century but also how certain aspects endure - like community gathering spots and local businesses shaping our towns and cities. This print truly captures both history and sentimentality within its frame.
