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 overgrown gardens and the rear of the houses in George Street with the entrance to the Alms houses through gates under the boarded building in the centre.
