EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from the early 1900s showcases the Hawking family, a tight-knit group hailing from Bude, Cornwall. The family is elegantly posed by a sturdy wall in their hometown or its vicinity. Led by N. J. Hawking (senior), this snapshot captures an era before the devastating First World War altered lives forever. The yard where they gather has since transformed into Peter Truscott's shop on West Fairholme Road, while back then in 1910 it was situated at 8 Lansdown Terrace. This image serves as a poignant reminder of how landscapes change over time and how memories are preserved through photography. Photographed by none other than N. J. Hawking himself, this intimate portrait offers a glimpse into the lives of ordinary people during an extraordinary period in history. It transports us to a simpler time when families found solace and joy in each other's company amidst the backdrop of their cherished community. As we observe this black-and-white photograph, we can't help but wonder about the stories behind those stoic faces and what dreams lay hidden within their hearts. It is an invitation to reflect upon our own familial connections and appreciate the ties that bind us together across generations. This remarkable piece from Royal Cornwall Museum allows us to travel back in time and immerse ourselves in the rich tapestry of life experienced by one particular family living in Bude during a pivotal moment in history – all captured through the lens of both photographer and relative, N. J
