The Ship and The Swan

In a conversation I had with my father in 2014, he told me about the Ship pub and the bakery behind the delicatessen where he bought pies in 1936.

Car spares shop Eddown & Co., referred to as Eddowns, occupied the site of that delicatessen, and was the last part of what was called Smith’s Terrace still standing for as long as I could remember. It was demolished at the time of making this video in April 2021, and so I have used screenshots from Google StreetView.

    My Mum and Dad (John and Marie), were the publicans at The Swan Inn in the 60’s and was thrilled to find your video… lots of memories. We lived at the back of the pub and can remember as a 14 year old, leaning out on the verandah at the top, thinking we had the best view ever! I met my hubby when I was 18 (now married for 54 years), at the pub as he was a barman there. We emigrated to Australia in 1969 and now live in Tasmania. Thanks for the memories
