EDITORS COMMENTS
In this snapshot from October 1915, we are transported back to Lemon Street in Truro, Cornwall during the tumultuous times of the First World War. The image showcases a poignant moment as a determined woman pins a flag onto a gentleman's lapel for the British Red Cross Our Day collection. With unwavering dedication, she collects money for wounded soldiers at the front. The photograph not only captures this act of compassion but also provides a glimpse into the collaborative efforts between St John Ambulance and the British Red Cross during those challenging years. Together, they shared resources and raised funds to support those affected by the war. As our eyes wander through this historical scene, we notice various elements that add depth to its narrative. A loyal dog stands faithfully beside them on the pavement while railings line the road behind them. The surrounding buildings with their windows tell stories of lives lived amidst uncertainty and sacrifice. Photographer Arthur William Jordan has expertly frozen this moment in time, allowing us to reflect on an era marked by resilience and unity. This print serves as a powerful reminder of how communities came together in times of crisis.
