EDITORS COMMENTS
This print titled "Mending nets at Hastings" takes us back in time to the bustling beach of Hastings, East Sussex, between 1925 and 1939. The image captures a moment of maritime tradition as fishermen diligently repair their nets on the shingle shore. The scene is filled with activity and concentration as these hardworking men carefully mend their fishing gear. In the background, we see a warehouse where supplies are stored for their watercraft. The boats, known as smacks, rest peacefully in the harbour nearby, their sails neatly folded against tall masts. The atmosphere is one of tranquility mixed with purposeful industry. It's easy to imagine the sound of waves crashing against the shoreline while these skilled fishermen go about their work. Their dedication to maintaining their equipment reflects a deep-rooted connection to both sea and trade. This photograph not only showcases an important aspect of England's coastal heritage but also provides a glimpse into daily life during this era. It serves as a reminder that even amidst changing times, some traditions remain steadfast. J Dixon Scott skillfully captured this slice of history through his lens - freezing in time an authentic moment that tells its own story without words. As we admire this remarkable print today, we can't help but appreciate the resilience and craftsmanship exhibited by those who made their living from the sea all those years ago.
