This bungalow on the high ground above Nesbitt Road, stood in a large field which could be seen as an open space from many parts of Brighton. I am told it was built early in the 1914/18 War, but I doubt this as it had all the features of a post war building and it was first listed in Brighton Directories in 1929. The photograph was taken from Natal Road in October 1957. Many years ago, towards the end of the last century, a Fair was held regularly at the foot of Bear Road. I am told that an elephant died whilst the fair was there and disposal of the carcass presented quite a problem. Eventually it was buried in a deep pit somewhere beneath the building on the left (now a laundry). This for the benefit of any future archaeologist who may, centuries hence, dig up some remains!
