Carlton Hill

Some things have changed

By Anon

I moved to Brighton and Hove twenty years ago from Devon. I moved here because a lot of my friends and family live here.

I have seen a lot of changes in Brighton and Hove over the past twenty years. The town has become much busier and there are lots of more shops and cafes.

I am profoundly deaf and I live near the Brighton Deaf Centre on Carlton Hill, which I visit sometimes on a Saturday night when they have a Social Club.

Carlton Hill has not changed a lot over the years I have been here, apart from the new flats that they are building. I also enjoy walking up Blaker Street as all the houses (well, most of them) are all different colours. I think it makes the street more personal.

Surely this page is a photo of White St. and at the top the former church of St Johns on the left, with the Riley Hall on the right. I lived at 15 White St from 1940 until 1949 and was in the church choir 1948/49 before I moved away.

Does anyone know Lottie Emery from Upper Park Place. She lived here around the 1940s. I would love to know if anyone knew her and the family please.

This is White Street and it has not changed to this day.

My grandmother was Charlotte Emery and lived in Upper Park Place. I think they ran the Red Lion. She died in 1936 so perhaps it's coincidence or it may be her daughter. Regards Mary
