Remembering Worthing’s fallen

The Worthing men who died in December 1915 while serving their country in the First World War.

A Harold Camburn postcard of the Broadway dating from 1910. Camburn, who was based in Tunbridge Wells, produced several hundred postcard views of Worthing and the surrounding area between 1910 and the mid-1920s. His cards were all of the real photograph type  that is, crisp images printed on good-quality photographic paper

The 115-year-old building that stands at the heart of Worthing

During the do-called “golden age” of postcards – dates vary, but the years 1901 to 1914 are as persuasive as any – the two most-photographed views in Worthing (excluding general views of the seafront) were, first, the view up South Street to the old Town Hall, and, secondly, various views of the building that still stands today just to the north of Steyne Gardens.
