EDITORS COMMENTS
This photo print, titled "High Street Sutton Coldfield, 1942" takes us back to a significant era in history. The image showcases the front elevation of 20-24 High Street in Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham, with Boots the Chemists occupying part of the premises. The scene is set against a backdrop of mid-20th century architecture, featuring charming Georgian-style row houses that line both sides of the street. These buildings exude an air of elegance and timelessness despite being situated amidst the chaos of World War II. Intriguingly, what catches our attention in the foreground is a sign for an Air Raid Shelter located in Old Bank Place. This serves as a poignant reminder of how daily life was disrupted by constant threats during this tumultuous period. Photographer George Bernard Mason has skillfully captured not only the physical landscape but also an essence of resilience and perseverance that defined communities during wartime. Through his lens, we are transported to an era where shopping on bustling high streets like this one provided solace and normalcy amid uncertainty. As we gaze upon this remarkable photograph print from Historic England's collection, it serves as a powerful testament to human strength and adaptability even in times of adversity.
