39. Interior of the Electricity Power Station at the junction ofThe Drove with New Road, in the 1930s. The Railway Company also generated their own power for the harbour and got their own water pumped from Denton, the pumping house ean still be seen beside the 'Flying Fish'. Good fresh water was mueh in demand in the days of steam ships and loeomotives. In Railway Road was situated the town's Gas Works,

40. Very much the linking of steam and water. This interesting photo of 1908, shows the interior of the boiler room of the hydraulic pumping station, where water was pumped up to a large tank on the roof of a brick tower. The water pressure from this was used to operate quayside eranes and capstans. J. Moody is the foreman.

41. The beautiful engines. Driven by steam, they always appeared to work so casually, yet somehow convey their power almost as a contradiction. Not only is J. Moody the foreman but T. Lillywhite is the engine man. The tower features in many of the old photos and appears to be north of the 'Londen and Paris' hotel. It was on the east side of the railway and north of the Harbour station.

42. One of the nicest old pictures of the Bridge Hotel (now back to its original name of the 'Bridge' inn). Cooke is the landlord, but not so many years previously the name would have been Smith, as it was when the exiled French King Louis Philippe and his Queen, were guests for just the one night in 1848. To the left is the toll house where one paid to cross the river over the draw bridge, the fee being one halfpenny for a human. To the right is a little of Stone and Towner's steam flour mill.

43. Between the re ar ofthe Bridge Hotel and the river was the famous Tipper Brewery. As the letter heading explains, it is here being run by the Towner Bros. and likewise the flour mill to the left. Stone has ceased. The last section of this mill was only demolished in 1987. This scene is from Denton Island.

44. Still to be seen and read in St. Michael's Churchyard at Newhaven. This grave stone teils all about the legendary brewer, he did much too to promote the erection of the first bridge here, which can be seen above the inscription. 'He brewed a very strong ale with water slightly brackish and tapped at a good old age.' He sent regular supplies to the Brighton Royal Pavillion as it appears King George IV was very partial to Tipper's famous ale. The last known bottle is in the local Museum.

45. A scene never to be repeated I'm sure. James Green cleaning out beer barrels by scalding, at the Tipper Brewery, about 1890. Sadly the only other pictures to show up, have been of the exterior of the building.

46. At the bottom of the High Street, wnere now is 'Scoffers', was in about 1920, 'Balcombe & Lelliott', confectioners and tobacconists. The far figures in Riverside are abreast of the Gents convenience.

47. Another picture from the 1920s or just alittle later. The facing shop, centre, is the Ncwhaven dairy, where one could also partake of tea. The postal address was the High Street. The hotels are certainly seeking the custom of the motorist.

48. To the left of the dairy was a very strange building, the 'Universal Stores'. J. Fernandel was the proprietor and amongst the wares he could offer you would-be, blocks, chains, lamps, ropes, oils etc.: a cross between a hardware stores and a boat chandlers. At the top eentre ofthe frontage was a large clock, with written, one side, 'Tempus' and the other of course 'Fugit'. Sadly this is the only known photo and of such poor quality.
