EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back in time to the summer of 1915, capturing a picturesque scene at The Leas Folkestone in Kent. As we gaze upon this historic image, our eyes are immediately drawn to the magnificent Hotel Metropole standing proudly on Metropole Road East. The view from the south-east reveals a delightful park-like setting, where locals and visitors alike have gathered for leisurely activities. In the foreground, we see people seated comfortably around a charming bandstand that serves as the centerpiece of this vibrant public space. It is evident that this spot was not only a place for relaxation but also a hub of social interaction. August sunlight bathes everything in its warm glow, casting long shadows across the well-manicured lawns. The atmosphere is filled with joy and laughter as families enjoy picnics while children play games nearby. The bandstand itself stands tall amidst all the activity, promising an afternoon filled with melodic tunes that surely lifted spirits during those uncertain times. Photographed by Henry Bedford Lemere, this snapshot freezes a moment forever etched in history - an era when simple pleasures were cherished and community bonds were strengthened through shared experiences. Today, thanks to Historic England Archive's preservation efforts, we can marvel at this remarkable piece of nostalgia and appreciate how public parks like The Leas continue to be treasured spaces for generations to come.
