This photograph was taken from the garden of Goldstone House, looking south west across the farm buildings to the railway line. Part of the large meadow is now the Brighton & Hove Albion Football Ground. Behind the long garden wall was a rough track, now known as Goldstone Lane, which gives access to the Albion ground. The farm extends westwards to Sackville Road, then know as Hove Drove, covering the entire area now occupied by the extensive Goods Yard. On the left can be see one of the four cottages for the farm labourers, three of which were occupied until 1928. The long barn, which dates from 1798, is still standing (September 1955) though now hemmed in by factories. This photograph is a copy of a very faded sepia original which accounts for the fact that most of the background detail has been lost, but the roof of the Salvation Army Congress Hall can be picked out.
