Two pictures of what I was told was All Saints Street. One looking east, the other west.
Pictures taken by the late Sid George of Blackborough End just before he knocked 'em all down!
The chimney of Paul's Mill in the background of the one looking west.
Just off centre in both is a pointed gable end building that looks ecclesiastical - any ideas?

Hi Appso, spent a good deal of my childhood in AllSaints Street. As far as I can remember, the 'pointy' building was just a normal house. An old school friend of mine lived in the house behind the gate (with the tree in the garden) and on the opposite corner was Snasdells newsagents. I really loved those old streets, I know things have to progress but I'm sure there was more community spirit amongst the people in those old houses. In the summer, they would sit outside their doors and just chat, or knit and smoke. Peaceful times :-)

Since we are talking about the area around All Saints Street, does anyone remember Eddie Bray, never seen without his sidekick, a huge bulldog. Never knew which one wheezed the most, Eddie or the dog. Think he lived in South Everard St.

The pointy house was the old Sheherds Hall T. The Friars boxing club started out in that hall.

Thanks for putting me straight on that Ev, perhaps you'll know the answer to another question. On the same side of the street, between Snasdells and Arrowsmiths, was a large house behind wrought iron gates, if memory serves me correctly, it had a garden. Did someone important live there? Oh please, I can't stop laughing, we' re grown up people talking about 'pointy houses'! Sorry, silly sense of humour :lol: T

I think you are talking about Welwick Hse as that is the only one I can think of that had a garden. The house overlooked the Catholic school
and we used to see the little old lady that lived looking out of the window when we were in the playground. Bit spooky to us young kids.

Yes Ev, I always thought it a bit spooky and that was when I dared look through the gates! Just found the thread you mentioned, makes me feel sad for what has been lost, I know we shouldn't live in the past, but I'm sure times were nicer then, Sigh! T

Welwick House was the home of the King's Lynn Photographic Society, several well known Photographers were members.
I was told that it was a listed building that had a superb oak staircase, but it was demolished anyway.
The society folded, I do not know why, but a few years later the King's Lynn Camera Club was started as a result of the Photographic course held at the Tech, this was in about 1965, the first Secretary was Harold Rutland who passed away quite recently. When I joined in Jan. 1970 the only member from the Tech. course that still a member was Fred Pick.
After a lot of chasing around the Camera Club acquired the Photographic Society trophies and some are still in use.
