EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from the Historic England Archive takes us back in time to Victorian London, specifically the bustling streets of Strand, Westminster. The image showcases a street scene that is about to undergo significant urban development. Looking north-east along the Strand, we catch a glimpse of St Mary-le-Strand Church standing proudly amidst its surroundings. The focus then shifts towards Holywell Street, with its vibrant energy and charm evident even in this monochromatic portrayal. To the left of the frame, we see Drury Court's entrance beckoning passersby with an air of mystery and intrigue. However, what makes this photograph truly remarkable is knowing what lies beyond its captured moment. Shortly after this snapshot was taken, these very buildings on the left side would be demolished to make way for Aldwych development – forever altering the landscape and character of this historic area. As we gaze upon this image today, it serves as a poignant reminder of how cities evolve over time. It prompts us to reflect on our own urban environments and consider how they too have been shaped by progress and change throughout history. Through their meticulous documentation efforts, Historic England Archive allows us to immerse ourselves in these transformative moments from yesteryears – preserving our heritage while inspiring curiosity about our shared past.
