Sad to miss the school
It made my day to read the comments about George Street and remembering the memories of the stores. I went to George Street School for two years from 1957, I certainly remember Mr Jones. I visited the street some years ago, although it is lovely and modern, it was sad to miss the school. But I walked through into the car park to help me with the lovely memories and I certainly could feel them as I stood in what I felt would have been the playground. I feel it would have been coming up to a hundred years old now as I remember being there and celebrating its 50th birthday.

On the internet to reminisce
I loved De Marcos coffee shop, and the store that ground the coffee beans, I will never forget that wonderful aroma. I bought my first record of Elvis Presley at the record store. My mother worked at the greengrocers that was halfway up the street on the right hand side going up. I remember the street being painted, done up and decorated for the Queen’s visit; what an occasion that was. As I now live in Australia, I often jump on the internet to look up Hove to reminisce. It was certainly lovely to read the comments and reminisce about George Street.
