— #12 Newhaven's Back Streets
It will come as no surprise to the knowledgeable Stravaiger that James Street was named in honour of the founder of Newhaven, King James IV of Scotland. There were, in fact, two James Streets, each consisting of two-storey houses with balconies running most of the length of their upper storeys.
In all there were 49 two-room houses with the “luxury” of their own toilets and a tenement block, No 50.
In all, the Voters Roll listed 140 adults over the age of 21 living in the 61 dwellings thereby indicating less congested living quarters than some other Newhaven back streets.
