The Four 'Ation' Corners
Lest this piece of local humour be forgotten!
My mother, Gertrude Seifert (neé Elliott, born in Hove in 1904) informed me that the intersection of Holland, Davigdor and Cromwell Roads, Hove, was known as the FOUR ‘ATION’ CORNERS:
EDUCATION: A school was located on the S.E. Corner
SALVATION: A church was on the S.W. corner
ILLUMINATION: An electric company was on the N.E. corner
DAMNATION: A public house was on the N.W. corner
Possibly there is a message in the fact that only the pub has survived?”
