A Ship To Live In
This is Marine Court in Hastings. I was amazed and stunned when I saw this, as it's another wonderful Art Deco designed building. Looking it up on Google, I found it was built in 1937 and was based on the liner the Queen Mary. Some of the apartments are for sale, and for a sea view they cost about £60k. It became a listed building in 1999, and it seems that work has started to restore it to its former glory. Apparently it has an underground car park, which I would have liked to have seen. In fact I would have enjoyed a tour around the whole building as it just looks so fantastic. As the tide was in I couldn't go on the beach and take a full view of the building.
