Looking north in George Street at the time of the Trackless Trolley Bus experiment, in 1914. The electric current was conveyed to the vehicle from the overhead wires. George Street then consisted of small shops whose owners lived in rooms above the shop. At the extreme left was the Hove Fire Station, and a few doors further up, the very small Cinema. Like most Hove streets at this time George Street was gas lit. At the top of the street the large building, originally No.2 Goldstone Villas, was occupied by the Cliftonville Press, Printers.
