69. With peace in Europe secured, Victory street parties were held everywhere. Here we see the Newhaven Labour Clubs 'V' Day tea party on 16th June 1945. Note the Co-op bakers cart in the background.

70. An interesting view from Bollens Bush to Heighton. The Isolation or Fever Hospital (centre) was built next to the cemetery, replacing the SmalIpox HospitaIon Meeching Downs. (Volume 4, picture 9.) A place of sad memories for many. In later years it became 'The Valley'. With a recent development it has become 'Piddinghoe Mead' with several attractive homes.

71. In the vicinity of the previous picture a timber limber with a large tree makes its way slowly towards Piddinghoe, about 1924.

72. Piddinghoe, perhaps the most pictured view of the village. About six years ago a Iocal senior citizen assured me that she was one of the little girls in this scene. I hope she sees this photo.

73. Piddinghoe in the 1930's. A 'Goldsmith' motor barge idles its way downstream towards Newhaven. It would have come from Dover with a cargo of Kentish coal for the cement works at Asham at the foot of Itford HilI. This was a frequent traffic as was that with similar craft to the Isle of Wight with cement which went on into the 1960's. What a pleasant family scene! In the foreground can be seen some scrap metal, which was in fact exported from this wharf.

74. Many cards have been printed of this attractive view leading into the village of Denton. On the right is the 'Flying Fish' public house. The scene spe aks for itself, there is nothing to add.

75. With the church right in the middle of the picture this is a view from Mount Pleasant across to South Heighton.

76. Well-known is this artist's impression of the intended harbour improvements from 1878. There are photographs showing work in progress from 1879 onwards. Here can be seen the large doek towards Tidemills whieh failed to materialise. Mueh came to pass as predieted in this drawing. The east pier was built as shown, but lengthened later. No shortage of windmills it would seem! Onee again, I hope this little book has been able to bring a lot of pleasure to many people. Thank you.
