EDITORS COMMENTS
Step back in time with this photograph of The Rows in Chester, England, as it appeared in the late 1890s. This stunning Carriage Print, produced using the Photochrom process, showcases the unique and intriguing architecture of this historic city in Cheshire. The Rows, a distinctive feature of Chester's old town, are a series of continuous half-timbered galleries that form a covered walkway. The shops, nestled at the back of these structures, offer a glimpse into the past, inviting us to imagine the bustling activity that once took place within their walls. The Rows date back to the medieval period, with some elements believed to be even older. Their design, a blend of Tudor and Georgian influences, is a testament to the rich history and cultural heritage of Chester. The intricate timber frames, adorned with decorative carvings and ornate brickwork, create a visually stunning and distinctive streetscape. The Photochrom process, popular during the Victorian era, was used to produce this beautiful print. It involved the use of multiple glass plates, each coated with a different color dye, to capture the various tones and shades of the scene. The result is a vivid and detailed image that transports us back to a bygone era. As we admire this photograph, we are reminded of the enduring charm and allure of The Rows in Chester. A visit to this historic city is a must for anyone with an appreciation for architecture, history, and the beauty of the past.
