One of Brighton’s less pretentious streets, probably its chief claim to fame is its long-established Saturday morning market, at which almost every conceivable article can be bought. Built in the 1830s, it consisted of small dwellings, an occasional shop, and at its North Road end the National Infants School, and the large Durtnall’s Depository. With the passage of time the buildings deteriorated and by the time these photographs were taken on 9 September 1973, many were boarded up. Since then several have been demolished, and now (1981) new houses are being erected on both sides of the road. The school building still stands however.
