EDITORS COMMENTS
This photo print, titled "Library CC46_00597" takes us back in time to the bustling streets of The Borough in London during the 1920s. Here, we witness a slice of everyday life at Guys Hospital, where people sought solace and knowledge within the walls of the Free Lending Library. The image showcases a cellar-turned-library filled with individuals engrossed in books that transport them to different worlds. Amidst rows upon rows of neatly stacked volumes, men and women can be seen sitting on wooden benches or standing against bookshelves, their faces illuminated by the soft glow emanating from nearby windows. One woman catches our attention as she sits near a window, her eyes fixated on an open book resting gently on her lap. Lost in its pages, she seems oblivious to her surroundings - perhaps escaping into a world far removed from the hospital's corridors. This photograph is not just about books; it captures a moment when literature became an escape for those seeking respite from their daily lives. It reminds us that even amidst busy hospitals like Guys', there existed spaces dedicated to nurturing minds and providing comfort through words. "Library CC46_00597" serves as a poignant reminder of how libraries have long been cherished sanctuaries for knowledge-seekers throughout history. Marshall Keene and Company's lens has frozen this scene forever, allowing us to appreciate both the architectural beauty of this underground haven and the timeless allure of reading itself.
