EDITORS COMMENTS
This photo print, titled "Lamplighter in Lombard St. Petworth, 1931" takes us on a nostalgic journey back to the charming streets of West Sussex in the early 20th century. The photograph, captured by George Garland and preserved in the Garland Collection at West Sussex Record Office, showcases a lamplighter carrying out his nightly ritual under the warm glow of a gas light. The image exudes an undeniable sense of nostalgia as we witness this timeless scene unfold on the cobblestone street. The lamplighter's silhouette against the dimly lit backdrop creates an enchanting ambiance that transports us to another era. As we gaze upon this print, it is impossible not to feel a deep connection with our past and appreciate how far we have come. Dating back to 1931, this particular print holds even more significance as it bears some original marks from its glass plate negative. These imperfections serve as reminders of its authenticity and add character to an already mesmerizing piece of history. With every detail carefully preserved over time, this print allows us to immerse ourselves in the beauty and simplicity of life during that period. It evokes feelings of warmth and familiarity while also reminding us of how much has changed since then. As we admire this remarkable snapshot from West Sussex County Council's collection, let us embrace these glimpses into our shared heritage and cherish them for generations to come.
