Summary: photograph, bw photograph from series showing the two sides of the High Street, here including the premises of the London Central Meat Co, butchers, Thoday and Longman, electrical shop, Moore and Smith, fruiterers, and the Anchor and Hope Inn, at 93 to 96 High Street, Lymington, Lymington and Pennington, Hampshire, 1946

Summary: From a series of photographs of Lymington High Street taken by local photographer Frederick Drew, and later published in R Coles's 'Lymington High Street Then and Now'. A transcript of the captions from the book, briefly noting changes between 1946 and 1976, is filed with the photographs. The negatives from which these prints were made appear to have themselves been made from earlier prints. The owner of the negatives also donated a number of spare prints which appear, by their sharper quality, to come from this earlier series.
