Hastings 60’s & 70’s video supplied by Sarah Harvey.

We don’t usually feature anything outside of music but I’m sure these will interest a lot of people looking at this site. Also check out her other videos on the you tube channel. Well done Sarah.

Pete Fairless….There’s some great stuff, there, Sarah. Thanks!

Matt Thomas…..I think im in the park on the 70’s one doing the Hokey Cokey lol

Mick O’Dowd….Great stuff Sarah. You aint got any pics or footage of “Jim the Jolly Fish” that used to ply between Bottle Alley & The Sun Lounge in the 50’s early 60’s have you? Me and Andre are trying to find proof of it’s existence!

Peter Millington…..Thanks Sarah, Took a quick look at some and they made me realise just how much Hastings has lost through lack of maintenance and declining tourism.

Bob Hardy… would be grateful to see if there are any photos of jimmy the jolly fish

Pauline Sims… Such happy memories – thanks for posting this Alan

Tony Davis… Nice find Sarah, brought back some great memories. Does anyone remember the Guinness Clock that use to stand on the seafront near the pier. It was one of those mechanical ones that featured a toucan and other figures that moved on the hour. Anyone got a picture of it?

Sarah Harvey… Yes I do Tony… I used to go down on the beach and made a point of going to watch it every hour I was down there. It was cutting edge technology in those days. It was always positioned on the promenade adjacent to where the junction is to Robertson Street.

Alan Esdaile… Remember seeing it Sarah Harvey and it was at the promenade opposite to the junction of Robertson Street. Also I think I remember it at one stage to the left of the pier by the statue?

Sarah Harvey… Yes, I remember it there as well. I was totally fascinated with it. Hadn’t a clue it was really advertising booze….. just never featured in my thoughts…… but probably wouldn’t be allowed today for that very reason. That’s somehow so sad how we have become such a nanny-state. I seem to recall there were different versions of the clock.

Mick O’Dowd… The said clock in Hastings.
