At the heart of Hanover

Hanover in 1956

Who lived in your house 50 years ago? Were there still corner shops on your street?

You can go to old census data for household details by address up to 1911 and old publications like the Kelly’s Directories also help to fill out the picture, especially for more recent years than 1911. This information for Brighton & Hove used to be available at MyHouseMyStreet (MHMS) but the site seems to be having problems with page images (checked 2015 & 2016).
