Description (Object or Artwork): Monochrome photographic print showing Howells Almshouses. Charles Howell, a local builder, who lived at Dial House, 3 Hove Terrace, endowed these tiny houses which were first occupied in 1859, and thereafter they were supported by voluntary contributions. He would have been a sad man could he have seen the poor condition of these cottages, when they were photographed. They consisted of just two rooms, one up and one down, with a tiny kitchen and an outside water closet. They were demolished not long after and a three storey row known as Howells Court was erected in in 1987. This view shows the front elevation with the inscription above the doors.
