The creation of this arcade in the early 1960’s involved demolition of premises occupied by probably the oldest established business in Brighton. Wallis, Holder & Lee had been in Market Street, lately at 14 & 15, since 1804 when the business was started by the Mr Isaac Bass. They vacated these premises at Easter 1959, but it was a little later when the shop at the rear, 2 Bartholomews was acquired. These photographs were taken on April 26th 1960 and the buildings were removed soon afterwards. The Arcade was opened in 1962.
