How do you know the exact date? Is the photo dated on the reverse?

Dear Sylvia, I have purchased several aerial pictures of Newhaven dating from 1924 thro to 1949 and the company who took them informed me of the exact date they were taken.

Kind regards John Hills

Thanks for your reply, I wondered how you could be so definite with your date. It's a very interesting aerial shot. Perhaps you can add more when you have time.

I'm interested in the exact route the railway line took west of the swing bridge on it's path to the west breakwater. Do any of your photos show this please? I would be interested to know.

My late Mother bought three of these photos(including this one) from a door-to-door seller and had them framed as a birthday present for me. They are hanging on up my stairwell wall. I assume that the road parallel with the bottom of the picture is Saxon Road. All the houses on the even side seem to be of exactly the same design, whereas there are now four(numbered in the 20s) which are of a different design. Does anyone know what happened? WW2 bomb damage perhaps?
