  • My mum, Mrs Joan Fleet, worked at Pearson House for nearly 31 years as a cake and pastry cook, originally for Lord and Lady Pearson. She saw many changes over the years until it closed and was bought eventually by the hospital for accommodation.  My mum now lives with me in Southern France.

  • Hi Paul – are you Paul Fleet who went to Whitehawk School in the early 60s? I think you came from Woodingdean. If you are, my name is Richard Groves and your birthday was a day before mine – yours 11th Jan and mine 12th Jan. If it is you, how are you mate? I have now retired, how about you? If it’s not you, sorry to have inconvenienced you! Many thanks.

  • I lived on this street, Portland Place and went to St. John the Baptist school.  It’s great to see the pictures on this website. I now live in San Francisco.
