Newhaven

The View

This view looks to the east from Starbank Road, towards Marine Hotel at Newhaven.  There are two roads straight ahead:

-  on the left:  Pier Place, running alongside the harbour (out of picture, on the left) and past the church which has now been converted to an indoor climbing centre).  Pier Place by-passes the old village of Newhaven by a few yards.

-  on the right:  Newhaven Main Street, running through the centre of the old village. This street is now closed to through traffic.

The building behind the tram is Newhaven Fishmarket, now partly converted to restaurants.  he old fishmarket runs along the eastern side of Newhaven Harbour.

Publisher

I don't know the publisher of this post card.  I have only seen the front of the card.  Looking at the back of this card might reveal who the publisher was and /or when the card is likely to have been published.

Date?

When might this photo have been taken?

Date

Thank you to Danny Callaghan who replied:

"I would guess by the smart dress of the kids and the style of bikes this could be early-1950's.   This style of tram, I am sure, was still running right up till the trams finished."

The Hotel

Danny also asked the name of the hotel on the Point in this photo.

The name was 'Marina Hotel'.  The hotel was at the western end of Pier Place.

Thank you to Danny Callaghan who replied:

"Allow me to indulge my penny worth.  This style of tram was phased out pre-war, circa 1938/39.  I'm open to correction, but I'd guess the date of this photo to be early-1930s to mid-1930s."
