I am responding to the original post from Karen about pictures of St Ann's Street. I am a descendant of the Flanders family who once owned a clay-pipe manufacturing business on this street, going back to about 1802. It was owned by a Robert Flanders, who was born in 1771 in Peterborough, Northamptonshire, where he started this business, and died in 1850 on St Ann's Street.

If you go to Flanders St Ann's Street on this Forum, she will see a few photos of buildings which once stood on this street ... sadly, all razed in the later part of the 1990s however, I am told, that they were around 400 years old by the time they were torn down.

My ancestors, Holdgate, lived on St Ann's Fort Street from 1829 to 1839.

Karen posted her query many years ago so it may not be of any value to her now.

Frederick Stockdale Humphrey (1869–1952) was a distant cousin of mine, his wife was Rose Alice Young (née Sydal) and her father Richard Jenkyns Sydal's (1837–1900) occupation was 'master mariner' which was probably Fred's connection to becoming a ship's chandler?

Just take a few steps to the right after my previous picture - a clear view across to the Pilot Cinema.

Looking at the eaves I would say no. With the proximity of the tree I would guess next to the churchyard?

Humphrey's was next to the Churchyard and the trees only came down a very few years ago.I think the original Humphrey's was
altered when they built St Anne's Mansions above it. My mate Paul Lake(you can see him in the ACTIVITY boat thread) lived in
the Mansions next door to Larry Seaman our old teacher at Gaywood Park School. Larry always made sure Paul got to school
rather than down the Fisher fleet mucking about on the boats. "Mansions" bit misleading as the were full of rats and mice.

So is the set back bit to the right 11a? Makes more sense when seen from Southgates Grocers shop
http://viewfinder.historicengland.org.u ... &form=home
Think I've seen that picture elsewhere on here too.

Just about remember the trees coming down. Spent many happy hours in the Naval too. Wish I'd got pictures of the artwork in there before its unfortunate demise.

Yes I would like to have the money back I spent in the Naval over the years. Olive and Don were a great Landlord and Landlady. Avril their daughter
sadly gone now was really nice also. As you know the old pub is now part of True's yard and over the ten years I worked at the museum every time I
went in that part I'm sure I could here the old boys playing dommies in the bar. Happy days.

In my reverie I forgot to say that that picture is already on the forum along with some others. The setback bit was part of Humphrey's and the
last bit was the opening to Chapel Yard St Annes street that met up with Chapel yard Pilot street. They met behind St Nicks school.

Yes, I was sure I'd seen that pic on here before but couldn't remember where...

My time in the Naval was just after the final landlord took it over. After a drunken extraction from the Lattice, and a thirst for Newky Brown, Was pointed in the direction of the Naval as the cheapest Newky in town. At the time of closing, it had the end closest to Trues at that time, muraled with stone henge, the opposite end was a stage with some of the greatest guitarists ever and the ceiling was stars and lightning. All done by a lad who was local at that time. My old GPZ11 was often parked next to the anchor outside.....
We used to split our time between there and the Vic which also closed shortly after...

I recal there was a Bridal?Wedding shop oppositee and a hairdressers at what was Southgates Grocers and next door was tattoo's and CB's courtesy of Mick Taylor
