This photograph was taken by Alderman A. J. Clark from a rear window of the house in Hove Park Gardens, which is now occupied as an Old Peoples Home. He took it on the morning of 24 May 1906, the day on which Hove Park was opened to the public. The photograph shows the newly laid out park enclosed within the wooden fence which endured until 1930. Beyond were the orchard and fruit trees of Goldstone Farm and then the narrow lane, which led to West Blatchington. To the left of Old Shoreham Road one can see the Sackville Hotel and St Joseph’s Home.
