Michael Norman Collection

An opportunity to wander around the Shoreham of forty years ago and see those old buildings that are now lost to us forever.


ShorehambySea.com member Ian Newman has kindly donated the following images he has acquired from part of the collection that were largely photographed and put together by the late Shoreham historian Michael Norman. The majority of these were taken during the 1950’s and 70’s at a time when many of the town’s more important and historical buildings were still standing – the larger properties of St.Wilfrid’s, Longcroft and Athol House in particular but also a good many of our smaller street houses and cottages that have since disappeared.


Towards the end of the gallery a few of the older, more unusual images of special interest from the collection have also been included.
