Hi guys, does anyone have any info about what was in Tobin street before the houses on the hill top? We have an ariel shot from 1946, which shows a small cluster of what appears to be industrial buildings with a possible small boat behind the large house at the front. The present day building on the corner is still in use, but what was it used for in times gone by? My mum is now living in one of the houses, and we were digging in the garden and found a cobbled surface with rough hand made bricks, were these part of the foundations to the previous building? Can anyone help with info or better still photos? Thanks Jess cool

There was a timber merchants some years back. It did have a partial cobbled road into it if memory serves. Edmunds Taylor was their name. Previous to that I am not sure but there were shops running from King street to the prom in the early days.

No sorry. Just one that does the rounds and not my own photo. Looks like a gas lamp but that doesn't mean much as we had them in the fifties.
