Beccles Temperance Hotelhistorical era: mid 20th century

This seems to have stood adjacent to the baptist church - possibly connected?
My memory tells me that the hanging sign seen here [in postcard dated 12.30pm, July 22, 1911], lingered on the building all the way throughout the era when Gale's Garage had a car showroom adjacent [to the site]. I think they used the old hotel as the office to the garage. I am not at all sure when Gales finally sold out their business, but would guess in the late 1980s. The railings we see here, were [probably] removed for war weapons manufacturing purposes in the first world war.from David Wallace
