EDITORS COMMENTS
This print transports us back to the vibrant streets of Launceston, Cornwall in 1965. The focal point of this historic snapshot is Olivers shoe shop, proudly displaying a large boot and its name above the entrance. This charming establishment exudes a sense of local pride and craftsmanship that was once synonymous with small-town businesses. As we gaze up Broad Street, our eyes are drawn to Hepworths shop on the right side at number 5. Its presence adds another layer of nostalgia to this scene, reminding us of an era when independent retailers thrived in close-knit communities like Launceston. Photographer Charles Woolf skillfully captures not only the physical structures but also the essence of this bustling street. His lens freezes a moment in time when towns like Launceston were filled with life and character, before modernization transformed their landscapes forever. The significance of these photographs lies not only in their aesthetic appeal but also as valuable historical records. They provide glimpses into the past - snapshots that help us understand how our towns have evolved over time. Thanks to institutions like Royal Cornwall Museum, these precious images are preserved for future generations to appreciate and learn from. They serve as reminders of our shared heritage and inspire us to cherish both our local history and those who captured it through their lenses – photographers like Charles Woolf whose work continues to evoke feelings of nostalgia, curiosity, and appreciation for times gone by.
