My paternal grandparents, Fred and Ivy Hyde, lived at 40 Port Hall Street in the 1940s and 1950s. They then moved into number 20 and lived there from the 1960s to the 1990s. They had a son, my father, Terence b1943 who contributes to this site too, and two older children, Vera and Brian.
I have fond memories of this area of Brighton, and can see on Google street view that number 20, which is on the corner of Port Hall Avenue, has been drastically remodelled from the flat over the garage as it was when I was small; I was born in 1964.
Deacon’s sweet shop
I think the garage had previously been an ice cream parlour. I remember Deacon’s the sweet shop at the top of Port Hall Street, and loved going in there with my nan & grandad for a quarter of something or a jamboree bag. Mr Deacon was lovely. These photos were taken on one or other of these 3 streets.
