EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the charming town of Launceston in Cornwall, circa 1965. As we gaze upon Westgate Street from outside the iconic West Gate Inn, a sense of nostalgia washes over us. The street is lined with historic commercial buildings that exude character and tell stories of a bygone era. Opposite the inn stands Walter & Sillifant store, a bustling establishment that was likely at the heart of local commerce during those times. Its presence adds vibrancy to this snapshot of daily life in Launceston half a century ago. Photographer Charles Woolf skillfully captures not only the physical structures but also an essence of community spirit that permeates through this image. It's as if we can almost hear snippets of conversations and laughter emanating from within these establishments. The pub itself, with its inviting facade, hints at evenings filled with camaraderie and merriment. Perhaps it served as a gathering place for locals and visitors alike to share tales over pints of locally brewed beer from renowned breweries like Joyce or Greenham. This photograph transports us back to an era when towns thrived on their unique identities and businesses were deeply rooted in their communities. It serves as both a visual time capsule and a testament to Cornwall's rich heritage
