Hello! I'm wondering if anyone out there might have any old photographs or knowledge of Brighton Buildings on Tower Bridge Road
? Also, of Hastings Buildings which used to stand immediately behind Brighton Buildings, or indeed of any of the other "Buildings" that used to be in the complex in the area between Tower Bridge Road
, Webb Street
, and Swan Mead
? The Pagoda Pub (now The Hartley
) is another interest in this immediate area. The era I'm interested in is 1900-1950, so if anyone has any photographs of these buildings from that era, or they lived there, or knows what happened to most of them (only Brighton and Arundel still stand, I believe), I would be thrilled to hear from you.
My grandmother grew up immediately next to Brighton Buildings and my grandfather in Hastings Buildings, which is why I'm interested. It would be wonderful to hear from anyone who might be able to help me with my search.
Thank you all very much, and best wishes,
