Brunswick Terrace circa 1900s
A fine photograph of Brunswick Terrace with it’s magnificent bowed end, I wonder if this was the inspiration for the similar finish to the buildings at St. Thomas and St. Marys St. or maybe vice-versa. Amazing to think that this terrace in spite of being the most exposed to the sea and other elements appears not to have sustained much damage in the storm of 1824 which brought the sea over ‘The Narrows’ just in front of the bowed end. A family member who occupied one of the flats with bow windows, in the 1960s, told me that it was an extremely draughty building.
