Do you remember International Stores?

Regular contributor to Looking Back Dave Poole sent in these two photographs of the old International Stores in Terminus Road.

Old Eastbournians will remember Inernational was in Terminus Road and had two entrances, one in the pedestrianised precinct and the second around the corner in Bolton Road where Zizzi’s Restaurant now is.

Dave writes, “My grandfather, manager Jim McGrath, can be seen on the far left of one photo and in the centre of the other.

One of the photos I have worked out must be from the Coronation of George V as the store was still the International during the abdication crisis, confirming the date of this photograph as 1911.”
