EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the year 1962, capturing a cherished tradition known as "Riding the Bounds" in Richmond, Yorks. Every seven years, this remarkable ceremony would unfold, bringing together the community in a display of customs and traditions that have been passed down through generations. In this particular moment frozen in time, we witness one of the most intriguing features of the event – the Mayor being carried over the majestic River Swale by none other than the water-wader. As onlookers gather along its banks, their faces filled with anticipation and amusement, it is evident that this spectacle holds great significance for both participants and spectators alike. The atmosphere surrounding this photograph exudes an air of joyous camaraderie mixed with a hint of lightheartedness. The expressions on people's faces reflect a shared sense of pride in upholding these age-old traditions while also embracing their quirkiness. It is through events like these that communities come alive; they serve as reminders of our rich cultural heritage and bring people closer together. As we delve into this memory from Mirrorpix's collection titled Memory Lane Prints, we are reminded not only of how much times have changed but also how certain customs manage to endure against all odds. This print serves as a testament to human resilience and our innate need to celebrate life's peculiarities – even if just once every seven years.
