I have been ferreting through old photos again - it's a terrible time waster!

Can you identify this Brighton street?

Post your answer below please

Well done chaps - I am impressed with your knowledge. The title of the image is:-  'The bottom of Cromwell Street looking North towards Elm Grove. The corner shop on Elm Grove is a pet shop.'

Shooting from the hip here...but it could be looking down onto Elm Grove from one of the streets on the south side?

Hanover area, could be looking across Queens Park Road down towards Lewes Road, just a guess as I don't recognise it.

It could well be looking down Cromwell St towards Brading Road.  There was, as I recall, a red painted pet shop on that Brading Road/Elm Grove corner in those days that could very easily be the shop in the picture.

I'd go with that -wasn't the shop in the photograph a pet shop on the left as you climbed Elm Grove?

Yep, Cromwell Street looking down. I lived in the next street along which was Baxter. I can remember playing in a  Yard with old garages which is just off to the right up a cobbled allyway, you can see it in the photo.

Yep, I'll go with Geoff and Martin on this one, most certainly taken from Cromwell looking down into Brading Rd.

I'm pretty sure it's taken looking towards Brading Road as well. Distant relatives of mine Stan & Floss Jarman owned the pet shop on the corner for many years.
