Actually, my memories of Brighton go back earlier than 1953 because I was born there in
1933. I do have a memory of being wheeled in my pram over a small area of ridged concrete outside the little shop at the end of our street, Bennett road, Kemp town.
We were bombed out from there (number 35) in 1943 and I do remember that quite well.
From then on we moved to Preston Drove which was still in an area which suffered from the bombing. However, being a hop step & a jump from Preton Park it was a great spot in
which to spend my childhood.
I really hoped to find a photo of Brighton Town Hall amongst The Francis Frith photos but,
no luck. My grandfather had his barber's shop in the road behind the town hall; the shop and that road no longer are there and a hotel is in its place.
I could go on and on but had better not.
