History

Marine Terrace

Marine TerraceHere is Marine Terrace as it looked before Marine Garden was laid out showing the old footpath between the front walls of the houses there and the old green. Note some old gas lamps in the distance (a little beyond the chap in the boater).

Marine Terrace 1931Taken in September, 1931, this photograph shows the construction of the road that now fronts Marine Terrace. Prior to its construction there had been a narrow footpath separating the houses there from the old green. The construction of the road and the laying out of Marine Garden were both part of the one project. The work was largely done by local men, recruited by the Council from the Labour Exchange, under a scheme to give paid work for several weeks to unemployed men of the area during a period of high unemployment. Marine Garden was the first of the gardens to be created and, including works to adjacent roads, it cost the Council £11,392.
