EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative photograph captures the charm and character of Chester, a historic city in Cheshire, England, during the summer of 1935. The image, taken from the GWR (Great Western Railway) archive, showcases The Rows at Chester, a unique shopping experience that has drawn visitors for centuries. The Rows are a series of half-timbered buildings with covered galleries, accessible via steps. These structures date back to the medieval period and are a testament to the city's rich history. In this photograph, the sun casts long shadows over the cobblestone streets, highlighting the intricate details of the timbered facades. The scene is bustling with activity, as people go about their daily business or enjoy the summer weather. Shoppers can be seen browsing the wares displayed in the shops, while others take a leisurely stroll along the covered galleries. The Cross, a prominent landmark in Chester, can be seen in the background, adding to the sense of history and tradition. The Rows have remained largely unchanged since this photograph was taken, making them a popular tourist destination and a cherished part of Chester's heritage. This image offers a glimpse into the past, transporting us back to a simpler time and inviting us to explore the hidden treasures of this beautiful city.
