A successful bid for a set of 1913 storm-damaged bungalows on the beach provided a bit of a challenge as none of the bungalows in them were identified. An extensive trawl through our collections eventually matched them all and even managed to identify a long standing mystery bungalow that by coincidence stood close by!

In the Catty Norman & Framnaes article, reference is made to a bungalow named Silver Sea which, as you say, is topped by a distinctive looking belvedere. I have had a postcard in my collection for a number of years now with a similar looking mystery bungalow that I have been unable to identify. Comparing this to your illustrations of Silver Sea, it is similar but I don’t think that this is it.
So the question is …………… any ideas ?
It’s not what you know, it’s who you know!
Good old Howard Porter, Bungalow Town historian has found it.
Don’t think there’s much doubt it is the same one – my money’s on it being St. Thomas More bungalow as the number of properties from west to east on that road match and that looks to be the footprint that best matches St.TM.
