It is hard to realise that this is now the busy Woolworth’s corner, at the junction of Goldstone Villas and Blatchington Road. This photograph, taken about 1895, shows the West Brighton grammar School soon after the houses were built in 1874. At that period the side garden of the end house extended some distance along the frontage of Blatchington Road but in 1898 three shops, numbered 113, 115 & 117 Blatchington Road were built on this garden area. The Woolworth building in 1935 replaced these in turn with the first four houses in Goldstone Villas.
