EDITORS COMMENTS
Transported back to the picturesque summer of 1925, this print captures the idyllic charm of The Groves in Chester, Cheshire. Gazing upon the tranquil River Dee, one can almost hear the gentle lapping of water against the riverbanks and feel a cool breeze on their face. In this delightful scene, locals and visitors alike are drawn to the river's edge for a day of leisurely fishing or embarking on enchanting boat trips. Taken from the vantage point of Queens Park Bridge near the bandstand, this GWR Publicity view showcases not only nature's beauty but also highlights how popular The Groves was as a recreational destination during that era. With its inviting bridge spanning across crystal-clear waters and verdant surroundings, it is no wonder why people flocked here to escape into nature's embrace. The photograph exudes an air of nostalgia with its sepia tones and captures a moment frozen in time. It serves as a reminder that even amidst bustling city life, pockets of tranquility like The Groves existed where one could find solace in simple pleasures. As we admire this snapshot from history, let us be transported to those carefree days when summers were spent basking in sunshine by riverside banks or setting sail on whimsical boat adventures.
