Destroyed by fire again
The building with the distinctive round tower is at the junction of Eastbrook Road and Church Road, South Portslade, was originally a chemist in the 1930’s era, as recalled by my father-in-law Bernard Langrish.
In the early or mid 1970’s it was almost destroyed by a fire, then the shop and adjoining residence was taken over by the Harvey family who still run the theatrical costume shop in Trafalgar Road (as far as I know). In October 2007 it was again badly damaged by fire and has had to be demolished.
Any further memories or details of this building would be most welcome..
