The house in Number 8 (They are called Straymarsh cottages by the way) is the same Paul even the gable end is the same shape..look a bit closer at both, and the chimney is where it should be.

Looks like C.T.Y?????,   ????? & Coal, Merchant (and what could be) Ltd.

The ????? & Coal looks like Beer or the B could be an O.?

Coke and Coal Merchants Ltd ?

It does look a bit "well to do " for that street?

Can anyone read what those signs say in pic.14 as I think one of them might be a Public House?

Could not fix the link on 8 here it is again

8   http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?hl=en&ie=UTF8&layer=c&cbll=51.400431,0.767395&panoid=dB0yH5xtUlmsI3pWBGTiZA&cbp=12,137.26,,0,-1.67&ll=51.400382,0.767431&spn=0,0.003473&z=19

Thats it Paul go further up the road and look at the house, take no notice of extension the original behind is the same shape as this but I bet it had the windows. Look at the barn to the right also. Turn to your right and although no water now the fleet came right up to the road here and bear in mind the flood! Even the Road bends the right way at the right place..I do feel 100% but please pull it apart if you can..in the best possible taste of course :)

Agreed 7&15 :) http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?hl=en&ie=UTF8&ll=51.427586,0.775032&spn=0,0.003473&z=19&layer=c&cbll=51.427492,0.775149&panoid=Y9pC_xQN8CuncTtu_6231w&cbp=12,319.96,,0,2.29

8?    http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?hl=en&ie=UTF8&ll=51.400277,0.767562&spn=0,0.027788&z=16&layer=c&cbll=51.400352,0.767452&panoid=ZI-RmMi9Z0CL8w5ZzMg4hA&cbp=12,146.99,,0,6.53

conan, I think pictures 7 and 15 are taken on the Halfway Road by Power Station Road looking towards Sheerness. Over and behind to the left now would be the egg farm and the roundabout would be just behind you.

Picture 8 is on the Old Ferry Road going off the island. If you were to go down the old Sheppey way now and take the Elmley reserve turn off you have the old Fleet to your right and the cottage just in front that is where 8 is taken. Photo 3 could be a bit further down that road near the gun club.

In 16 you have the windmill, the water tower by the old council offices and the old Chimmney in Sheerness town centre. I think they are being viewed from roughly New Road/ RN sports ground, St Georges area..roughly

Conan, in pic.13 there is a large building with railings at the front. Could this be the Strode Street Baptist Church? I`m not a native of Sheerness but remember once going to this church, many years ago, but can`t remember much about it except that the organ was situated at the front left-hand side. I think the building has since been demolished.

Great pic's, I will show them to my mum as she grew up in Sheerness and had relatives living in Bluetown, she may be able to identify some of them. My father, Aln Roy Rennison, a long time dockyard matie, received a medal( lost I'm afraid ) for his part in rescue work in the 53 floods. his brother Archibald, along with many others also helped in the floods, so why he was singled out for a gong, I don't know.
