Drawings of three of a group of four ancient Victorian slums which ran north from Edward Street to Carlton Hill. The missing street was Chesterfield Street, between Thomas Street and Derby Street. They were some of the worst slum streets in Brighton, and were worthy of a description by Dickens. They were condemned in the early 1890s and after arrangements had been made for the inhabitants to be rehoused, they were demolished in 1896. On the cleared sites were built the existing Blaker Street and White Street. I have included these drawings in my collection because no photographs of these streets remain, if in fact any were ever taken.
