First picture and Picture 17.
After looking at the pictures for 0.01 seconds, i am 99.9% sure it is the telephone exchange in Wood Street. The backs of the houses on the left side, are in Portland Terrace. The houses on the right hand side are Albion Place.

picture 17 and my picture (first one in the article) were obviously  taken in the same place, probably by the same photographer, perhaps someone can identify the building behind the fireman, it looks quite distingtive like a telephone exchange ? i was told it was off victoria street shrubsole ave or vincent gardens area ?

No.13 is definitely Alexandra Road School - I've just pooped down and had a look. Not sure where Hythe House comes into it, its out on Marine Parade on the corner off Alexandra Road.

Could be? :)
But I think Hyth House was built before the houses so would have been there?

I'm pretty certain that picture No.13 is outside the Alexandra Road Infants School, (behind the railings) before further houses were added to carry on round the bend. I first went to that school in 1952, when the houses that I mention were then in place. One of the houses just past the school used to be a sweet shop when I went there.

According to the Sheerness Times Guardian of Feb 28 2008, photo 14 is of Russell Street 1897, at the same time part of Blue Town pier was washed away.

It does seem a bit long for a Bluetown street?

Forgot to mention that when I firrst saw Pic 14 I thought it was either Russel Street or Hope Street as they seemed to be more main Streets than wood street

Once again thanks for all your input,you guys never cease to amaze me.

Bryn Clinch I am not sure but I don't think they are the same If you look at picture 5 the crescent is full of trees.
Thanks for the google links Paul its nice to have a then and now comparison.

Pic 14.  So How old could this picture be and also is the building substantial almost opposite the possible Coal Merchant the Hit or Miss or as it was later (1902) known as, The Sheerness Literacy and Social Club. This was no. 13 Chapel Street. If not what could it be?
