Celia Malfroot, Newhaven resident for many years, now living in Greece, asked if someone could take pictures of the Victorian post box in Ship Street.  Happy to oblige!

Thanks Marilyn, there was a "bottle and jug" opposite that I went to for my grandfather's beer around 1950 maybe.

Many thanks for that Reigna. Always wondered what that street was named.

Do you all mean just down from Woody's corner shop, just along the road from Lamberts shop or the little shop? I can remember walking to these shops I am sure on my own across the Lewes Road to buy sweets before decimalisation. What was up with my parents, I must have been around 5/6 years old?.

I think the corner shop was the Silver Horseshoe at some stage in the 50's. I remember it as a corner shop, run by a kindly grey-haired man, who called all the lads "Ma Duke" and the girls "Ma Dear!" Ron Herriott may be able to help on this one.
