37 Whitegate Road, Southend on Sea
« on: Monday 07 November 11 22:08 GMT (UK) »
    Southend-on-Sea, Essex
    37 Whitegate Road

This address no longer exists, it was demolished for the Warrior Square Swimming Pool which itself has been recently demolished for something else. I think it was around up to about 1957-8.

Does anyone out there have any old photographs of this address, if so I would love to see.

Thank you

I just love looking for interesting information ..
if you are searching for family around the 1900, beaware that Whitegate renamed to high road in 1900. so maybe look for buildings in High road. :)

Southend timeline is very interesting ..

Brewery Controversy - The Luker Brewery was quite an iconic building in Southend's Whitegate Road

http://www.southendtimeline.com/1895.htm
The High Street, as we know it today was only called this name from Pier Hill to the railway bridge.  There on it was named Whitegate Road, and in this area just north of the bridge sits predominatly the Middleton Hotel and the Brewery (Luker) today the Starbucks and the University building would occupy this area.
