EDITORS COMMENTS
Crossing to Lindisfarne: A Journey Through Time on Holy Island Causeway, Northumberland, England (circa 1960s) This evocative black-and-white photograph captures the essence of a bygone era, as a simple van braves the treacherous waters of the Holy Island Causeway in Northumberland, England. The scene is set against the backdrop of the North Sea, with its vast expanse of water stretching towards the horizon. The Holy Island of Lindisfarne, also known as Holy Island, is located off the northeast coast of England. It is accessible only by a narrow causeway that is exposed during low tide but submerged during high tide. The causeway is a natural wonder that has drawn visitors for centuries, but it also presents a unique challenge for those seeking to reach the island. In this photograph, the causeway is dotted with warning signs, their stark white contrasting against the dark waters of the sea. The signs serve as a reminder of the danger posed by the tides, which can rise rapidly and leave travelers stranded on the island or trapped on the causeway. Despite the risks, the van driver in this photograph presses on, his vehicle loaded with goods and supplies. The van's headlights pierce the darkness, casting a small beam of light on the causeway ahead. The scene is both breathtaking and awe-inspiring, a testament to the resilience and determination of those who dare to venture out into the unknown. This photograph transports us back to the 1960s, a time when travel was more adventurous and the natural world held a greater allure. It is a reminder of the power of the sea and the importance of respecting the forces of nature.
