There seems to be no authentic information to explain why this little street was so named. Certainly, it was one of the oldest streets in the town and as early as 1818 it contained 14 houses. Some of these were removed when in 1852, Brighton’s first block of flats was built at the corner of Jew Street and Church Street, model dwellings for the artisan classes, as they were then described. This photograph is of 1-4 Jew Street in 1936, just before they were demolished. The others are of 9 Church Street, at the east corner of Jew Street.
