Here is a genuine piece of Old Brighton, which few Brightonians still living would claim to remember. For this reason I attach a copy of this area [following] from the Ordnance Survey of 1875, and have marked the houses in red ink, with XXs. They were 8 & 9 Kent Street, the narrow cul-de sac turning from the corner of Kings Road and West Street. Where the horse is standing on the left, was the side entrance to the large West Street Brewery. The photograph was taken in the early years of this century and the houses that are left in this tiny street finally went when the Brewery area was cleared away in 1932.
