A recent copy of a remarkable photograph taken between 1859 and 1868. The exact year is not known but names on the buildings (much clearer on the original) and old directories narrow down the period to the above. The view taken in Rose Hill terrace, the obscured entrance to Kingsbury Street (then known as Chichester Street), Baker Street, entrances to Marshalls Row and Francis Street, and so on down to St Peter’s Church. The original wooden railings enclosing the Level can be seen. The terrace of houses at the left, then known as Ditchling Terrace, are much older than I had imagined as the whole row had been completed by 1855.
