Oh I do like to be beside the seaside – Ship Street

Here are some photographs taken in Ship Street and of the seafront at Brighton. The Old Ship Hotel is where John Dinnis lived and worked as a Cook and Publican, with his wife Charlotte Robinson and children Catherine Ann, John Henry, Fanny, Harry, Charlotte Harriet, George and Cora. As we already know, Cora died at the Old Ship in 1856, aged 3 years.

    I worked in the Old Ship as a holiday job when I was a student. The ‘back stairs’ areas were truely fascinating. Sadly the Old Ship resturants are an american burger bars and concessions now. Oh that makes me feel old!!

    • Oh I would love to hear more about the ‘back stairs’ area! There are tours of the Old Ship, I plan to go on one at the start of November, I am so looking forward to it. It has such a lot of history!
