EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from the George Garland Collection takes us back to a historic moment in time - the floods at Pulborough in January 1939. The image showcases an intriguing view of a flooded area alongside a road, with an iconic Austin car standing as a witness to this extraordinary event. As we delve into the details of this photograph, we are transported to an era where nature's power was on full display. The scene is both awe-inspiring and slightly eerie, as water engulfs what was once solid ground. The reflection of the surrounding landscape creates a mesmerizing effect, blurring the boundaries between reality and its watery counterpart. It serves as a reminder of how unpredictable and relentless Mother Nature can be. The presence of the contemporary Austin car adds another layer of intrigue to this snapshot frozen in time. Its mere existence amidst such chaos evokes thoughts about resilience and adaptability during challenging times. Preserved by West Sussex Record Office Ref No. Garland N17825, this print holds immense historical value for West Sussex County Council. It not only documents an important natural disaster but also provides us with insight into life during that period - showcasing transportation technology and illustrating how communities coped with adversity. As we gaze upon this image, we cannot help but marvel at its timeless appeal while contemplating our own vulnerability in the face of nature's might.
