EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative photograph captures a moment in time at The Church Stairs in Whitby, North Yorkshire, during the 1950s. The scene is one of quiet industry and everyday life, as a local baker makes his deliveries, carefully navigating the steep, cobbled stairs that lead from the quayside up to the church above. The weight of his basket is evident in the set of his shoulders and the determined expression on his face, as he focuses on the task at hand. The Church Stairs have long been a defining feature of Whitby's historic harbor, with their winding ascent providing a challenging but necessary link between the town's commercial center and the higher ground above. The rough-hewn cobblestones underfoot add to the sense of rugged resilience, reflecting the community's long history of adaptation and survival in the face of the elements. The photograph, taken by renowned English photographer Hallam Ashley, offers a glimpse into a bygone era, when life was more simple and the rhythms of daily life were more closely tied to the natural world. The image invites us to reflect on the enduring character of Whitby and the people who have called it home, as well as the importance of the small, everyday moments that make up the fabric of our lives.
