EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the aftermath of the devastating Great Storm of 1987 in West Sussex. Standing as a testament to nature's raw power, an old Ferguson tractor now finds itself entangled under a fallen tree. The once vibrant red paint has faded and given way to rust, symbolizing the passage of time and the relentless forces of decay. The hurricane-like winds that swept through the countryside left behind a trail of destruction, with trees uprooted and landscapes forever altered. In this rural setting, where tranquility once reigned, chaos now reigns supreme. The fallen tree serves as a stark reminder of Mother Nature's ability to humble even man-made machinery. As we gaze upon this poignant image from the David Johnston Collection at West Sussex County Council's Record Office, our minds are transported back to that fateful day when lives were disrupted and communities united in recovery efforts. It is through photographs like these that history comes alive; they tell stories beyond words. While it is impossible not to acknowledge the damage caused by such natural disasters, there is also beauty in their aftermath - an opportunity for renewal and growth amidst adversity. This photograph encapsulates both loss and resilience within its frame; it speaks volumes about humanity's connection with land and how we adapt in times of crisis. Let us remember this scene as a tribute to those who endured hardship during that stormy night - may their strength inspire us all when faced with life's tempestuous challenges.
