    Thanks Leigh. I have corrected the title and caption.

    Excellent photo. I can remember that there were remains of the tracks on to the harbour up until the late 60s-70s until the council started to make the area safer.


    There was an ill fated plan to link the Hastings station with the harbour for goods transport purposes and possibly similar to Folkestone, for passengers as well

    The harbour when it had a purpose to shelter boats and act as a landing stage.


    Like so many things that were introduced into the town they were never fully exploited and developed

    Two bath chairmen plying their trade in the middle.


    The sun shades over the deck chairs indicate the era before showing a persons body and getting a tan became popular and modesty prevailed. The men were all wearing jackets and some also wearing waistcoats. It must have made them very hot and uncomfortable especially as they could only look forward to a wash in the scullery when they got home at the end of the day.

    Just before the WW2 I lived above my grandfather's umbrella shop at 67 High Street, and my father took me down as a 3-year-old to this place at the bottom of All Saint's Street. It was called Gallops ,and was a ships chandlers. In the window were huge models of all sorts of sailing boats.

    There was also a man with a barrel organ, and a monkey on his shoulder, outside most times. The Good Old Days !

    Isn't it time that someone corrected this appalling error?

    I remember this being 'Harry's old town bingo' in the late 1960's, a place i used to frequent a lot as we lived at number 53 Tackleway, next to the church. It was prize bingo operated by twin sisters who were the owners aunts as I recall. The owner at the time was Harry Symonds, who now owns the Deluxe. My interest in the place was the amusement machines that were there, trying to earn a penny or three as a 10 year old, and being turned out by my ear after giving the machine a gentle nudge, to encourage pennies to drop.

    This same building was used in the late 60's as an annex to Priory road boys school. I used to have metalwork classes there on the third floor, but there was also carpentry and motor mechanics. Mr. Irwin our metalwork teacher was also a member of the magic circle.....happy days!

    I reckon most of these cars in 1938 had a dodgey handbrake!

    My aunt lived in one of the railway cottages half a century ago. Try an estate agent Sue--you might find pics of the cottages. I believe they are still there as Zoopla show the property's present values.

    This is a really nice colour record of how it used to look! Such ugly scenes at that location these days!

    I would of thought this picture was taken mid 1960's. The Ford Anglia was introduced in 1959 and Mastins on the right was demolished in 1972.

    Very stylish building, more in keeping with the others near it and certainly nicer than the one that replaced it eventually.

    I used to visit my Dad in the TB hospital in Ore village and then some years later visited an Uncle in this hospital. They's be out in these chalets regardless of the weather... wind, rain or snow! I seem to remember that the chalets were on wheels and could be turned around to avoid the wind. Lovely in the summer but not so pleasant in the depths of winter. I believe the treatment is obsolete now and they use other methods. How successful this particular treatment was, I'm not sure. Both men passed away in their 70's, both smoked heavily in their lifetimes - so who knows....

    This building was at the bottom of Creek Steps and was demolished as part of The Bourne Clearance that started in 1935, clearing away the slums to make way for The Bourne road as we know it today. The Creek Steps leading to All Saints Street still exist and there is a bus stop where this house once stood.
