High Street, Ventnor, in the early 1900s. Article by Michael Freeman, photo courtesy of Sophie from Blake’s Longshoremen. A photograph of Ventnor High Street, close to the junction with Pier Street, probably taken at the height of summer in the 1890s. The article points out several buildings that are recognisable today, although the businesses themselves have changed over the years, and mentions the Country House Tea Rooms, Sir Francis Pittis & Son, Marlborough House, Alfred Scott’s Ironmongers (now Hurst’s), and Chemists James Dunning and Charles Weston, famous for ‘Weston’s Liver Remedy’.
