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.
