EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back in time to the bustling streets of Sherborne in 1939. The image showcases a vibrant scene on Cheap Street, where E J Upsall's Fruiterer and its adjoining confectioners stand proudly. The architectural charm of these Georgian buildings is evident, with their listed Grade II status adding an air of historical significance. In this snapshot from May 1939, we see a glimpse into daily life during that era. A stylish car occupies the foreground, parked outside the shopfronts, while a delivery bike leans against the wall nearby. These modes of motor transport provide a fascinating contrast to today's modern vehicles. The signage adorning both shops catches our attention - prominently displayed are advertisements for cigarettes, reflecting the cultural norms and consumer preferences of that time. Photographer Robin W McDowall has skillfully captured this moment frozen in history. Through his lens, we can almost hear the chatter of shoppers as they navigate through Sherborne's vibrant marketplace. This print serves as a valuable archival record, offering us insight into not only the architecture but also the commercial landscape and transportation methods prevalent during this period. It invites us to reflect upon how much has changed over eight decades while appreciating Sherborne's enduring charm.
