The latest picture from the Reeves collection shows the celebrations of Peace Day in November 1918 in the Dripping Pan, which was then, as it is now, the stadium for Lewes Football Club, who started playing there in 1885. A little known fact: the space was formerly used by Lewes Cricket Club, and was even used for two Test matches in 1854 and 1860. We like the toddler playing in the ropes of the marquee on the right who might, just, still be alive today. Reeves have an extensive archive of photos in their collection, which you can browse through and buy at 159 High Street where the business has been running for four generations since 1858. If you know anything more about any of the photos we publish, don’t hesitate to contact us.
