Photographs, Negatives, Slides and Plates of Sussex
A horse-drawn charabanc is parked up outside the New Bridge Inn at Newhaven around 1900. There appears to be two groups posing for the photographer - the smartly-dressed men are probably about to clamber into the charabanc which has a sun canopy. The rest of the men are in their working clobber and probably taking a break from supping ale to pose for the photograph. At the time of this photograph the pub was kept by the Richardson family and operated by Tamplin & Sons Limited, a company based at the Phoenix Brewery at Waterloo Street in Brighton.
These two women have been captured by a photographer touting for postcard business on the pebble beach at Hasting. In their fashionable clothes, they are clearly not on the beach for anything other than relaxing in their deck-chairs. The woman on the left has a book underneath her chair, her friend opting for a newspaper or magazine.
