Old Photos of Witham

46-50 Newland Street with horse and cart

Taken: 10 July 1914, Ref: M700

From the survey of 1914 by the Royal Commission on Historic Monuments.

Left to right, 50 Newland Street (‘Luckin Smith, provisions, wine and spirits merchants’, with advert for ‘Gilbey’s wines and spirits’), 48 Newland Street (‘Gage’, ‘Hairdresser’ and ‘Tobacconist’), 46 Newland Street (with crane; was Charles Brown and sons’ corn merchants). Horse with nosebag and cart in front. Number 48 was described by the RCHM in 1914 as a ‘house, now two shops’.

The original RCHM Record Card for these buildings from 1914, contains rather more about their structure and history. They were Witham Monument 20. I think the cards may now be held by Historic England in Swindon.
