NEW CHURCH ROAD AREA
I had not intended to introduce a photograph of a football team into this collection, but it so happens that in the background is a good view of Wish Barn. This stood just about where Welbeck Avenue now is and was originally part of Aldrington Farm. The houses seen are in Langdale Gardens. The intervening roads, Braemore Road, Berriedale Avenue and Welbeck Avenue were built by Barclays Bros., in 1926/7.
The photograph was taken in April 1924, in Marine Park when Hove Belmont beat Kingston Athletic 1-0 for Division 1V Shield. I (J.S.Gray) am the second from the right in the front row
