Partially demolished

By Peter Crowhurst, North Laine resident

This is a photographic print of the rear of Nos 1 and 2 Gloucester Passage, Brighton. The tiled roof above the extension to the house has partially collapsed.

This photograph was commissioned by the Environmental Health Department of Brighton Borough Council. It formed part of a visual record of areas considered for slum clearance. These buildings were probably demolished in the early 1960s.

My great great grandfather, Shelah Harvey, was living at No 2 Gloucester Passage, with his widowed mother and siblings, in 1861.
