Hummersea Farm

Hummersea Farm

We realise that we’ve had this image before, but the description is different and it’s a good image.  Where were the coast guard’s cottages?  Does anybody recognise the two people in the doorway?

Eric Johnson tells us: ”Of interest in the photograph, are the upstairs windows, they are of the ’yorkshire’ sash type; in which as can be seen in three of them, the lower left hand panes open ”sideways” by sliding to the right. unlike normal sash windows with the upper panes sliding up and down. I think the coastguard cottages are now known as Warren Cottages towards the alum quarry.”

Many thanks to Eric Johnson for the update.
