Old Maps of Hastings

Historic Maps of Hastings and the local area.

I was born and grew up in 10 North Street and I remember this as the dairy at the end of the street.It was owned and run by a lovely old spinster and her deaf brother. My Mum and Nan were friends with her ( I can't remember her name ),and I have fond memories of her giving me a bottle of orange juice often when I was playing out.

Are you sure that's right? I lived in St Leonards (next door to Hastings) for several years, from about 1945 to 1955 and the front was always called the Promenade. But perhaps it was different back in 1925?? We lived in Blomfield Road, with a public garden opposite that was a wonderful place for us kids. When I went back down Memory Lane in the early 2000s I was sad to discover the park had been replaced by housing. Thank you for the information - now corrected. Ed
