An unusual view of the base of this massive railway viaduct, taken about 1960. Built in the late 1860s, to carry the short feeder line from Kemp Town to Brighton Central, it stood exactly upon the site of the shops seen in the photograph seen a previous page. In fact the stone pillar, by the archway, is one on the right of the two in the earlier photograph. Having been part of the Brighton scene for more than a century, it was a sad day for many Brightonians when the unused and forlorn viaduct was demolished in 1976.
