EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the vibrant streets of Launceston, Cornwall in 1965. Standing tall amidst the hustle and bustle is Olivers shoe shop at 3 Broad Street, a true icon of its time. The charm of this historic town is beautifully captured by photographer Charles Woolf. In this snapshot frozen in time, we see the grandeur of Olivers shoe shop frontage. A large boot hangs proudly above the entrance, serving as both a symbol of their trade and an invitation for passersby to step inside. The name "Olivers" adorns the facade with elegant lettering, drawing attention from all who wander along Broad Street. The image transports us to an era when local businesses thrived on these very streets. It evokes memories of a simpler time when customers would enter through those doors seeking quality footwear or perhaps just to browse amongst the latest trends. As we gaze upon this photograph, it becomes evident that it captures more than just a commercial building; it encapsulates a piece of Cornish history. This street view showcases not only Olivers but also other neighboring shops that were part of Launceston's bustling retail scene. Joyce Greenham's lens allows us to appreciate how towns like Launceston have evolved over time while still retaining their unique character. This print serves as a reminder that behind every brick-and-mortar establishment lies stories waiting to be discovered and cherished for generations to come
