I understand Beach Street, Deal was renumbered around 1894.  Has anyone seen a map/plan prior to this?  I am looking into167 Beach Street which I understand was also called Woodfull, a small hotel.  It was on the beach side of the road.

Also would the area between Broad Street and South Street where it meets Beach Street have been renumbered as well?

Grateful for your help and knowledge please!

Thank you
Mike

Nice picture, Islesy.
For those that don't know, the house was called 'Seagirt', built in the 18th century and added to on the left hand side by the Victorians, giving them an extra front door. The part on the right, what was left of it by WW2 was used as a gun platform for, I think, an AA gun. All gone now but the Royal Exchange still stands as a private house.

Great picture, Islesy. Looks like an `Everest` extension on the extreme right! :)

Another view of the Royal Exchange/Capstan Row area dating from 1890-1910.

Nice picture Ilsey.
For anyone that's interested, Seagirt was the last private house standing on the seaward side of Beach Street. It started in Georgian times as a cottage and the Victorians added the bit nearest the road with the two gables in the roof. In WW2 there was an extension seawards where an AA gun was mounted. the part between Saegirt and The Fox pub was a line of capstans called Capstan Row.

It's certainly a great pic, just wish I could take an ordinary one  :)

Thanks to all those that have commented, the intention was to promote a discussion on old Deal, rather than my Photoshop skills though!

The key to these photos is to have one recognisable element in both images that can act as an anchor point to the finished pic, it's difficult with Dover because so much has changed, Deal on the other hand hasn't altered greatly which makes a composite easier. If anyone has any high res photos of old Deal that they'd like to see as 'Then & Now' composites send them through and I'll see what can be done.  :)

Great superimposition Islesy, must have taken a fair bit of work, but I found it really helped me to contextualise the 'Then and Now' part of Deal that it depicts.

Thanks

Excellent work Islesy. Your good with the photoshop/paintshop. It really brings the old pic alive as we can place it properly now, those of us who don't know Deal that well can anyway. Thanks. S4.

Superb! It reminds me of the time after a particularly violent storm C1978 when the crazy golf course in front of the Kings`Head t`other side of the pier played host to several fishing boats and the whole road was about 3in deep in shingle...

Pick where you want to go with this!



'Then & Now' composite of the junction of Beach Street/Exchange Street. The Royal Exchange Hotel remains to the left (as a private residence) along with the North Deal Boatmen's Rooms, the buildings to seaward (including the Fox) were demolished to make way for the widened promenade, possibly circa 1925.

Building in the foreground left has links to Goodwins Heroes and the greatest 'keep the kids quiet' books ever!
