EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back in time to the vibrant Findon Fair of September 1932. The image, captured by the talented photographer George Garland, showcases a snapshot of rural life in West Sussex during this era. The scene is filled with an air of nostalgia as we witness farmers and locals coming together at this bustling event. The sheep pens are teeming with livestock, their woolly coats gleaming under the sunlight. It's a testament to the importance of farming in this region and highlights the deep connection between people and their land. As we delve deeper into the photograph, our attention is drawn towards the crowds that have gathered around. Excitement fills the air as families enjoy a day out amidst laughter and chatter. Children can be seen eagerly observing these magnificent animals while yokels engage in animated conversations about farming techniques. This print serves as a window into history, allowing us to appreciate how much has changed over time while also reminding us of our roots. It encapsulates not only an agricultural show but also represents a sense of community spirit that still resonates today. Preserved within West Sussex Record Office's Garland Collection, this remarkable piece offers both residents and visitors alike an opportunity to immerse themselves in West Sussex's rich heritage – one that celebrates its farming traditions and captures moments like these for generations to come.
