Copies of two very old photographs of 1860s vintage. The beach at the foot of Black Lion Street with half-upturned boats used as fishermen’s stores. At this period (1864-67) Kings Road was being widened by being carried out over arches, some of which were let “to private persons as seaside lounges” as can be seen in the photograph. Hedges & Butler were to stay here for another 70 years.The buildings seen (right) were in Kings Road, between West and Middle Streets.
