My name is Gail Scott, the Drages fruitshop was my Granny and my dad’s. I knew Elsie as I used to go to the shop when I was a little girl. I remember the Queen opening George Street. I also used to go the De Marco’s and I remember the Coe brothers! Lovely memories.
Brian Parsons, my Dad was born 1907 so maybe he was in the school photos with your Mum, Ralph James Bamber. At the time they had a Grocer/Confectioner’s Shop at 2A Bentham Road nearly opposite.
O dear. The grim march of progress takes no prisoners.
I am afraid that Abraham Steiner was not a pupil at Brighton Institution. I have also checked that he was not the pupil of Miss Mary Hare Private School.
We lived in Glendale Road 1955 – 1958 and I do not recognise the names given for the repository. Didn’t the synagogue have Davigdor Road as address? I’m interested in both the repository and the adjacent coal yard!
There was not a single builder for the houses in Quebec Street; a number of builders were involved. Similarly the earliest completion was around 1864, but building continued until the early 1870s. The Keep have records relating to the building of the street and you should visit there if you are looking for a specific house.
