EDITORS COMMENTS
This haunting print captures a chilling moment in history, transporting us back to the devastating plague outbreak that struck London in 1665. The scene unfolds on Holywell Lane, Shoreditch, where the relentless grip of the epidemic is vividly portrayed. In this heart-wrenching image, we witness the grim reality faced by Londoners as they grappled with an overwhelming number of plague victims. The engraving by W. Sherlock after S. Wale for Montague's History of England offers a glimpse into the harrowing task of collecting and burying those who succumbed to this deadly disease. Laden onto a cart destined for their final resting place, these unfortunate souls are depicted with great detail and sensitivity. Every figure tells its own story – from grieving families bidding farewell to loved ones to brave individuals risking their lives to carry out this vital duty amidst such perilous circumstances. The atmosphere is heavy with grief and despair, yet there is also a sense of resilience and determination emanating from those involved in this somber procession. As we reflect upon this poignant illustration, let us remember the immense suffering endured during one of history's darkest chapters. It serves as a stark reminder not only of our shared vulnerability but also our ability to persevere through unimaginable adversity. The Mayson Beeton Collection has preserved this powerful piece which stands as both an artistic testament and historical record - forever etching into memory the profound impact that pandemics can have on society throughout time.
