EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the winter of December 1971 in Cronton, Knowsley, Merseyside. Standing proudly in the heart of this quaint village is a relic from a bygone era - the old stocks. These weathered wooden structures served as a chilling reminder of punishment and justice during the 20th century. The image transports us to an age where crime was met with public humiliation and confinement. The Smithy Lane stocks were once used to restrain wrongdoers, their hands or feet locked within its unforgiving grip. As we gaze at this historical artifact frozen in time, we can almost feel the weight of past transgressions that have been held captive here. The photograph captures not only the physical presence of these ancient stocks but also evokes a sense of nostalgia for simpler times. It invites us to reflect on how society has evolved since then, leaving behind such primitive forms of punishment. Willasey's skillful composition allows us to appreciate every detail - from the worn-out wood grain to the surrounding cobblestone streets that bear witness to countless stories untold. This snapshot serves as a testament to our collective history and reminds us that progress comes hand-in-hand with change. As we admire this remarkable piece captured by Willasey, let it serve as a poignant reminder that even relics like these hold immense value in preserving our cultural heritage for generations yet unborn.
