Here’s another really old photo of North Parade, dated from c1898 and kindly sent in by Syd Bird. No sign of a promenade wall, or promenade at all for that matter in the foreground. Look in the background and you’ll notice some construction work of an in-progress promenade. Click on the photo for a larger view and you’ll see the old, old lifeboat station. Syd tells me that the sign on the timber gates says “Horses Kept At Jesse Bird`s Market Street” – for more images of 80 Market Street go here. So much local history in this photo if you look for it.
