The holiday crowd stream down West Street on a Sunday in July 1899. This is the only one of my many photographs of Old West Street that shows even a glimpse of the Turkish bath. This was built on the site of private houses, in 1868, at a cost of £14000 and remained until 1911 when it was removed to make way for the Academy Cinema. This by the way, was the first Cinema in Brighton to be built especially for that purpose.
