An American gentleman recently emailed an image of a painting he has of a street scene in Hastings so I rummaged through my photographs of Hastings and came up with a good match. Just thought you'd like to see.

Not all the pictures I take go onto the web site because there would be far too many and this is one that isn't on the web site.

The photograph is taken at a much narrower angle to avoid the parked cars on the other side in a rather narrow street.

I should add that the painting is by William Henry Brooke ARHA (1772-1860) of "Houses in the High Street, Hastings" dated 1842.

Not a lot has changed has it?
