Two Photos same place

Knott Family Album

Sent in by Dr Simon Cotgreave

You may wonder why these two photos are on the same page but they actually help to pinpoint where the photos from the Knott family album were taken therefore where the caravans were situated.

If you look at the photo on the left you can see it is on the beach side of the seawall. At the top of the picture is a shelter. Now look at the photo on the right - on the right of this photo you can see Concord House plus the seawall and the shelter that can be seen in the previous one. An enlargement can be seen below.

The maps below show Concord House and Rosewinkle Avenue (now May Ave) where the caravans were situated and the same site as it is today. It is very clear that the shelter was on the top of the seawall round about where the Concord cafe is today. The caravans were somewhere to the north east of Concord House on the east side of Rosewinkle Avenue.
