EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from the STEAM Museum of the GWR takes us back to a significant moment in history - 1914, when workmen were busy excavating the land for an extension of A Shop in Swindon. The image showcases their diligence and dedication as they meticulously prepare the site for construction. The scene is filled with bustling activity, with laborers clad in rugged attire tirelessly digging into the earth. Their tools and equipment are scattered around, testifying to their hard work and determination. In this snapshot frozen in time, we witness firsthand the physical exertion required to extend a shop during that era. To add context to this historical photograph, Redcliffe Street can be seen on the left side of the frame. This detail not only provides geographical orientation but also highlights how urban development was encroaching upon previously untouched areas. As we gaze at this image, it serves as a reminder of our ancestors' industrious spirit and their commitment to progress. It prompts us to reflect on how far we have come since then while appreciating their efforts that laid foundations for future growth. This print captures a pivotal moment in Swindon's history, showcasing both human endeavor and architectural evolution. It invites us to delve deeper into understanding how such expansions shaped communities and transformed landscapes over time.
