Views from a vantage point part way up the path that was to become the 100 steps (travellers to the top of the East Hill would have to wait until August 1902 for the steepest funicular railway in the country, the East Hill Lift, to open). In the right foreground, at the end of Tackleway, are Lindsell Cottages, built in 1862 by 'The Hastings Cottage Improvement Society' (HCIS) in an attempt to improve the slum conditions prevailing at the time. All of these images date from the end of the nineteenth century. The new harbour started in 1896 has not yet had a chance to alter the shoreline.
Right: 1870's - note Hastings 'new' pier in the background and washing drying on the beach
