EDITORS COMMENTS
This photo print, titled "Before Aldwych HSI01_01_001" takes us back in time to the bustling streets of Westminster, Greater London in the early 1900s. The image captures a street scene on Stanhope Street as it stretches towards the junction with Newcastle Street. As we gaze upon this snapshot from over a century ago, we are transported into an era of immense change and transformation. The photograph showcases a row of shops and buildings that were soon to be demolished to make way for the development of Aldwych. It is both a testament to urban development and a poignant reminder of loss and destruction. The intricate details within the frame reveal horses pulling carts in the foreground, adding an authentic touch to this historic moment frozen in time. Taken as part of a series documenting the Holborn and Strand improvement works between 1901-1902, this image offers us valuable insight into London's architectural evolution during that period. Preserved by Historic England Archive, it serves as a visual record of how our cities have evolved over time. As we observe this remarkable photograph print by Historic England Archive, let us reflect on how progress often necessitates sacrifice – old structures making way for new ones – while also appreciating the beauty captured within these fleeting moments from our past.
