54 and 56 Blatchington Road, together with four houses in Belfast Street, 33 and 39 were demolished in 1964. On the large cleared site was built the new Tesco store opened at Easter 1965. These streets were laid out in the 1870s. Blatchington Road, from George Street to Belfast Street, was formerly called Conway Terrace. Most of these premises were shops from the start, whereas from Connaught Terrace to Sackville Road all were, at first, private houses. The two photographs were taken early in 1964. Another view looking south.
