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.

  • My mum worked in the office of Clark’s in the 50’s and can still remember the names of her colleagues.

  • My late father in law Vic Maggs worked there – I think today you would call it maintenance. When first courting my now hubbie of 48 years – I would go to Sunday tea with a delicious array of cakes on the table. I recall buying from their shop in Western Road , their shepherd’s pie – very yummy.
