Heather Sidery… Love this!

Brigitte Lee… Any idea of the year?

Alan Esdaile… not sure Brigitte, perhaps someone else can help?

Keith Veness… Remember the bath and wash house

Jacqueline Marsh… My grandad had the Duke of Wellington opposite the wash house behind the old Hastings Wall. He was Bill Shirley

Lynda Whatley… Jacqueline, back in the day I believe it was known as The Silver Dollar locally when gran and grandad ran it .

Pauline Lindsay… Jacqueline, later it was called The Duke of Cornwall.

Cyndy Hogbin… Grandad and grandma, and my mom and dad, all landlords at the Nelson, from about 1947. Grandma was the secretary for the lady licencee association. Henry and Dora Coates and Fred and Peggy Coates. When my mom died they where at the pub, thats when dad met my other mom Barbara.l was 2 then so that was 1952, we had the Queens coronation there.

Lyn Farkley Appleyard… Just imagine having wash and bath houses today! Might become a thing with the looming economic situation!

Dennis Torrance… I reckon before they demolished the houses in old town before they put in the road we have now before 1959

Alan Esdaile… Dennis, I was thinking early 50’s but maybe wrong?

Dennis Torrance… it could be early 50s have you looked to the left of photo a gap between the back of Lord nelson pub it looks to me before they knocked down the houses to put the road there

David Daish… I lived in the flats next to it in the 80s and my parents were great friends with Tony and Tracy Shipley . Dad used to fall asleep in the bar often after a drink and was a moody so n so if he got woken up . So Tony kept a long stick behind the bar specifically to prod dad from a safe distance 😄 . Some fantastic characters back then . I miss that time down there .

David Kent… Hard to tell whether or not they are Horatio’s clothes. Looking closely at the sleeves.

David Martin… I remember going in there with my mum the fella that ran it was Jack Clasper
