EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back in time to the early 1900s, where a group of people are seen delighting in a pleasure ride along the picturesque Thames River. The steam-powered boat they are aboard, known as The Fashion, exudes an air of elegance and sophistication that was characteristic of Edwardian leisure activities. As we gaze at this snapshot frozen in time, our eyes are drawn to Cleeve Lock standing proudly in the background. This lock served as a gateway between Goring and Oxfordshire, allowing boats like The Fashion to navigate through different sections of the river with ease. Adjacent to the lock stands a charming cottage which belonged to the dedicated lock keepers responsible for maintaining order on these bustling waterways. It is fascinating to note that during this era, pleasure boat rides had become not only a popular pastime but also a significant source of income for river authorities. As such, it comes as no surprise that groups like these would eagerly await their turn within the confines of Cleeve Lock while relishing every moment spent amidst nature's beauty. Henry Taunt's skillful photography captures both the joyous expressions on each person's face and their meticulously chosen costumes - reminiscent of Edwardian fashion trends. Through this remarkable image, we can almost feel ourselves transported back in time; imagining what it must have been like to experience such carefree moments on board The Fashion while cruising down England's iconic Thames River.
