Clarks the Bakers,  was located at the junction of Newtown Road and Fonthill Road, Hove. The second photograph shows the bakery in Newtown Road. I believe that I took these two photos in the early 1970’s when Clarks had several bakers shops in the Brighton and Hove area.

1d bag of stale cake

The shop that I remember well was the one in Portland Road at the top of St Heliers Avenue Hove. On my way to school at West Hove Junior School in the early 1950s, I would buy a 1 penny bag of stale cake.
