EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the year 1860, offering a glimpse into the notorious Petworth House of Correction. The image showcases the imposing structure as seen from Tillington Road, with its austere facade casting an eerie shadow over the scene. A horse-drawn carriage and several pedestrians dotting the road add a touch of life amidst this somber backdrop. Petworth Jail was not just any ordinary correctional facility; it held a reputation for being one of West Sussex's most formidable prisons. This photograph captures its essence perfectly, evoking feelings of both curiosity and trepidation. It serves as a reminder of an era when crime and punishment were intertwined in society's pursuit of justice. The George Garland Collection has preserved this historical gem, allowing us to delve into our county's past through visual storytelling. As we gaze upon this print, we are transported back in time, contemplating what life may have been like within those cold stone walls. Stored at the West Sussex Record Office under Ref No. Garland N17822, this photograph is part of our collective heritage that sheds light on an important aspect of local history – how communities dealt with lawbreakers during bygone times
