The building in the corner was Brighton Teacher Training College. The building at right angles in the distance was a hotel.
My mother Florence Starkey was studying in the Teacher Training College top floor and looked out of the window across the angle into the side window of the curved bay hotel window to see a woman hovering strangely in the shadow of the back of the room. Their eyes met.
She looked away and as she did so the woman threw herself from the window and was impaled on the area railings below, directly next to the College's entrance. All the students were confined to the College for hours whilst the 6 foot section of railing was sawn out. One can still see only the top rail was crudely welded back. This may also explain why the windows are blocked.
One small anonymous tragedy.
