Old Maps of Shanklin

Historic Maps of Shanklin and the local area.

I remember Lower Hyde Farm holidays with great affection. Went approx five times in the 60S and always had a great time. Evening entertainment was in 'the club' where host Bob would expertly guide you through the evenings. A feature was the Russian Ballet where you kissed your partner at the end of the dance - a very daring thing for a 16 year old. Wonderful memories of a bygone age.

Please can somebody tell me what the building is with the sign on the top of the wall? I have a honeymoon photo of my great grandparents taken on a horse and coach around 1890. The sign says .....ish's Family Hotel. The first part of the sign is obscured. I'd love to know if that is the same building some twenty years later, and where it is - if it still stands.
