News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

If you look on Google earth the window frame looks original on the Otway side and shop style ie down to a couple of feet off the ground, on the Hermann side there is a single private entrance door and window

Thats a good point, the wall against Otway Terrace has been rebuilt, so may have been a shop window!

Ok, I just checked, the one on the Corner of Cromwell/Ottway is the Portland Vase and that is still there (or was a year or two ago!), so I guess that must be a former shop.

Is that Herman Terrace or Cromwell Terrace?  The 1896 OS Map (the first that shows those streets) shows a pub on the corner of Cromwell Terrace/Ottway Street, but not Herman Terrace. If it was not a pub it must have been a shop.

On the corner of Herman Terrace and Otway Terrace is this building.  It looks very pub like - or was it always a residence?



I can't quite make out the writing on it either...   The ???????? Hospital ??????.........
