Ex-Poppe Inne Restaurant, 1-2 King Street, Dover UK.

Judith Robinson lived here while we were both pupils at St Mary's Primary School, Queen Street from 1958-1962. I lived at 81 Clarendon Place.

There is an Old Dover photograph showing how the Poppe Inne used to look when Judith lived there.

The wide-angle photo at the top of this page was taken from the entrance to Fishmonger's Lane: King Street runs in front of the Poppe Inne towards the Market Square on the right; Queen Street (where the armchair and rocking horse photos were taken) is on the left of the Poppe Inne, heading towards York Street in the mid-distance; Bench Street is at the bottom left and leads to the Indian Mutiny War Memorial and the seafront.

The Poppe Inne is now the La Romana Restaurant.

There is a Facebook group for ex-pupils of St Mary's Primary and Infants Schools, but only for when these schools were located in Queen Street.

Click to see the Roman Ruins of the Classis Britannica Fort and Saxon Shore Fort at Dover photo.

The ruins lie behind the wooden fence in the above photo, half-way up Queen Street on the right-hand side.
