These three photographs provide a good illustration of how slowly officialdom moves in the 1960s and ‘70s. It having been stated in 1964 that the portion of this busy road between the Southwick boundary and Olive Road, would soon be widened, I had this photograph taken on 14 July 1964. It shows the four houses 301/307, built in 1928. In April 1976, they are still here! In fact, widening has just started at the Portslade end of the road. The other photographs show the demolition, in February 1976, of the matching four houses at the west end of the recessed crescent, 345/351.
