EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to a significant moment in history - the entrance to the escalator shaft at Monument Station, Newcastle, on the 7th of January 1978. The image perfectly encapsulates the essence of urban life in the late 1970s, showcasing both the progress and charm of this bustling city. As we gaze upon this snapshot frozen in time, we are transported to an era when public transport was undergoing transformative changes. The newly constructed railway system known as Tyne and Wear Metro stands proudly before us, symbolizing a shift towards modernity and efficiency. The entrance to the escalator shaft serves as a gateway into a world of convenience and connectivity. The composition is strikingly beautiful; shadows dance along the walls while light streams through from above. It evokes a sense of anticipation for those descending into this subterranean realm or emerging back up into daylight after their underground journey. This photograph not only captures architectural details but also tells stories of countless commuters who have passed through these very doors over decades. It reminds us that cities are living organisms constantly evolving with each passing year. Preserved by Memory Lane Prints' dedicated staff, this image offers us an opportunity to reflect on our shared past while appreciating how far we have come. It serves as a reminder that even seemingly mundane aspects like transportation can hold immense historical significance if we take a moment to truly observe them.
