Street Plan of Worthing c1830 Featured C.L. Boes Print

Street Plan of Worthing c1830

Shows Warwick House and gardens, Wortley House, Marine Library, Sea House Hotel, and New Town (built c1820s on what is now Clifton Road). Interestingly, Union Place is called Union Street, which there is no reference to it ever being called. It is not as detailed as the 1826 / 1832 Wallis plans, but is charmingly coloured in watercolour. The Worthing Map Story does not make any mention of this plan, but it does refer to the early street plans as not always being perfectly accurate, as they were usually copied from each other. This does make dating the plan an inexact science, as the absence of a building does not mean that it was not there at the time. It appears to be earlier than the Broadwater Tithe Map of 1848, and is later than the early 1820s, as it shows Ambrose Place. The northern section of Chapel Road (Teville Road to Winton Place - Bo-Peep Lane at time, and unmarked) is called North Street, a name it lost in 1836. The western end of Montague Street is described as Cross Lane, a name it retained until c1820 (it is Montague Street on the 1826 Wallis plan). The lack of detail on this map compared to the 1814 and 1826 plans does not necessarily mean that it is earlier than either of these, as there are buildings on this plan that date it to the late 1820s, early 1830s.

Monument To Rising Featured C.L. Boes Print

Monument To Rising

The monument at Glenfinnan, at the head of Loch Shiel, Inverness-shire, which marks the spot where Bonnie Prince Charlie (1720 - 1788) raised his family's standard (his grandfather was the deposed James II) at a gathering of Jacobite troops on August 19th 1745. The army he had organised for an attempt to reclaim the British throne was unsuccessful and the rebellion, known as the 45 Uprising, ended at Culloden where 1,200 Scots died. Bonnie Prince Charlie went into hiding until Flora Macdonald helped him to escape to the continent where he spent the rest of his life. (Photo by Alfred Hind Robinson/Getty Images)

Children in fancy dress at a carnival or fete Featured C.L. Boes Print

Children in fancy dress at a carnival or fete

A group of children of assorted shape and size lined up for a photograph to show off their fancy dress costumes. Among the characters on view is Little Bo Peep, a Native American with feathered headdress, a flower (in a wheelchair), a girl dressed as a purse or handbag and a sweet little girl with a white rabbit on a leash. This looks to be a fete, fair or carnival at an unidentified British location. Date: c.1925
