EDITORS COMMENTS
This print transports us back in time to Pembroke College, Oxford, where a group of domestic servants proudly pose outside one of the grand college buildings. The image, captured by the talented photographer Henry W Taunt, offers a fascinating glimpse into the lives and work of these individuals who played an integral role in maintaining the prestigious institution. Dressed in their distinctive uniforms, these dedicated men and women exude a sense of dignity and professionalism. Their attire reflects both practicality and tradition, symbolizing their commitment to service within this esteemed academic environment. Standing shoulder to shoulder with confidence, they embody the unsung heroes behind the scenes - those responsible for ensuring that every aspect of college life runs smoothly. The composition is striking; it captures not only the physical presence of these servants but also hints at their camaraderie and shared experiences. Perhaps they are taking a momentary break from their duties or seizing an opportunity to document themselves as part of Pembroke College's history. As we admire this remarkable photograph print from Historic England's collection, we are reminded that it is through such glimpses into everyday life that we truly understand our past. It serves as a testament to both the diversity within society during this era and highlights how different social classes coexisted within educational institutions like Pembroke College.
