Address?

Postby melanie » 07 Jun 2005, 00:52

Hi there,
Any idea of the addresses of these shops? My GGrandparents lived (and I believe ran a clothiers shop) at #22 High Street (1881) and #6 High Street (1871).

Just wondering,
Melanie

Hi melanie,
In the now picture, Dorothy Perkins is 87 to 89, getting higher from right to left. I've got some more old High Street (but not as old as that one) still to sort out, hang in there :D

(Looking North) Date unknown, but before 1897. Jermyns (No. 10, to 16) on the right, Wilkins No. 118 on the left.
Image

(Looking South) 1897, Jermyns on the left burnt down, I'm not sure if the buildings on the right burnt down also or if they were just demolished, anyone?
Image

Date unknown, new Jermyns on left, new buildings on the right set back and road widened.
Image

(Looking North) 1908, Scot and Son No.42 on right. Cash & Co. No 87 on left.
Image

Could be the same day as above pic. The Queens Arms No.45 on right
Image

(Looking North) Date Unknown, Northern end of the street, Trenoworth on left, later to be Woolworths (don't know the number), trees in the Tuesday Market Place down the end, Norfolk Street to the right.

Just found this pic of Hunstanton dated 1907, it shows the Jermyns had a shop on the
green.

Is it a store or just an advert for the Lynn store?

I was thinking, while looking at that view, do I prefer that little kiosk or do I think the present building on the site is more in keeping with the area? I think I may take some time to make up my mind.................................. :twisted:

Spoken to a work colleague today who lives in this area who confirmed that Jermyn & Perry had a shop in Hunstanton on the corner of High Street and Grievegate Terrace ( in today`s terms that would be opposite corner to Warehouse Clearance Shop ) although he didn`t know when they ceased trading at that location.

Hope this helps the debate a little.

Thanks for that Steve. I suppose the thinking behind it would be that every one
promenading would see it.

Another view recently acquired.

The van has "David Greig" on it but I can't read the number plates or either venicle, David Greig's hasa something like 5194 on it. The car has a pointed back. Hunter's were Tea Dealers and Provision ..... and they sold soap, candles at 8 1/2d and Goden Tins of something for 5 1/2d. The card was posted on 18th July 1933, so it is a little older than my Dad who was born on 17th October 1933!
