EDITORS COMMENTS
This photo print, taken by Andor Gomme in March 1957, transports us back to the Tachbrook Estate in Pimlico, Greater London. The focal point of the image is Malcolmson House flats, standing tall against a backdrop of rain-soaked urban streets. As we gaze upon this snapshot frozen in time, our attention is drawn to a notice prominently displayed in the foreground. It declares that this particular street has been designated as a play area for children, rendering it off-limits to vehicles except for essential access. Intriguingly, lining one side of the street are an array of vintage cars and a lorry from yesteryears – relics from another era now captured forever within this frame. These vehicles evoke nostalgia and offer glimpses into the past lives of those who once traversed these very roads. The raindrops delicately speckling the pavement add an element of melancholy to this scene; they mirror both the weather's moodiness and perhaps hint at hidden stories waiting to be discovered within these walls. Andor Gomme's expert composition allows us to immerse ourselves fully into this moment frozen in time - an intimate glimpse into everyday life on Pimlico's streets over six decades ago. This evocative photograph serves as a testament to Gomme's skillful storytelling through his lens and reminds us that even amidst change and progress, traces of history remain etched onto every corner of our cities.
