A painted advertisement for ‘Pouf’ insect killer made by Domestos, I would guess it dates from the 1960s but its in superb condition.
Thanks to Mike for telling me about this one.
On my way to work this morning I spotted that the first part of the ‘vertical pier’ (otherwise known as a tower) has appeared.
Theres been a lot of negative reaction before its even been built, but i’m willing to give it a chance before judging.
Captain Cook was born in Marton on 7 November 1728 (27 October is the old Julian calendar date)
The memorial plaque is on a piece of stone from Point Hicks the first part of Australia seen by Cooks expedition on 19 April 1770.
Built in the usual pale Pease bricks, the Police Station is now a private residence.
Its marked as a police station on OS maps up until 1928 and by 1938 a building at the current location exists, so the switch is probably somewhere between those dates.
This sundial is dated 1776 and carries the motto “”Ut Hora Sic Vita” which is apparently quite common amongst sundials, translating as “As is the hour, so is the life” or “Life is as an hour”
Sundial Row was originally a terrace of Almshouses.
Although partially obscured at the moment the plaque reads.
THIS PUBLICK SCHOOLHOUSE WAS ERECTED IN THE YEAR 1744 AND REBUILT IN 1773.
The building has many scar of older windows and doors
