Doris Steers Collection

A long standing friend and neighbour in Church Street, Doris Steers, possessed a wonderful collection of postcards that she had put together over the previous forty years that I would often enjoy looking through during our discussions on Shoreham’s history. Sadly she is no longer with us but Doris has left us an enduring record of her interests through her collection.
