EDITORS COMMENTS
Sessions House, Preston: A Glimpse into the Past through the Lens of H Bedford Lemere's Camera Step into the grandeur of the past with this stunning photograph of the interior of the Assembly Hall at Preston's Sessions House, taken by renowned photographer H Bedford Lemere in 1904. This Edwardian Baroque masterpiece, located on Lancaster Road in Preston, Lancashire, was designed by Henry Littler, the County Architect, between 1900 and 1903. The Bedford Lemere daybook records Goodall, Lamb and Heighway as clients, but the purpose of their commission remains a mystery. As you gaze upon this image, you are transported back in time, feeling the weight of history in the ornate detailing of the room. The high ceilings, adorned with intricate plasterwork, and the grand fireplace, framed by ornate columns, are just a few of the architectural marvels that make this space a true testament to the elegance and opulence of the Edwardian era. The Assembly Hall was the heart of the County Sessions House, where important legal proceedings took place. The room's grandeur and impressive design were intended to inspire awe and respect, reminding those who entered of the gravity of the proceedings that were about to take place. This photograph, taken over a century ago, offers a rare glimpse into the past, allowing us to appreciate the beauty and craftsmanship of a bygone era. The Sessions House in Preston remains a cherished piece of local history, a reminder of the rich architectural heritage that continues to inspire and captivate us today.
