EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from the George Garland Collection takes us back to a significant moment in history - the aftermath of floods and snow that struck Bury Hill on 17th March 1947. As we gaze upon this image, our eyes are drawn to a group of dedicated road workers who stand amidst the chaos, determined to restore order and make the road passable once again. With their trusty grit lorry by their side, these resilient individuals battle against nature's forces. Armed with stop/go signs in hand, they orchestrate traffic flow while simultaneously combating treacherous mud that threatens to impede any progress. Their unwavering commitment is evident as they strive for one common goal - allowing an Austin car to safely traverse through this challenging terrain. The scene before us serves as a testament to human resilience and adaptability in times of adversity. The juxtaposition between the rugged landscape and the perseverance of these workers creates a powerful visual narrative. It reminds us that even when faced with daunting circumstances, there will always be those willing to roll up their sleeves and work tirelessly towards restoring normalcy. Preserved within West Sussex Record Office's archives, this photograph not only captures a specific moment but also encapsulates the spirit of unity and determination exhibited during trying times. It stands as a reminder of how communities come together in moments of crisis, showcasing both individual heroism and collective strength
