I lived with my parents in number 38 from the end of the war until the slum clearance scheme. Not very happy days with stone yards and outside toilets and condemned rooms. Some good neighbours but the majority were introspective and lacked drive. (I wont name names).

My father, at the time of his marriage in 1936, also lived at 38 Ashton Street, Brighton.

Haha, that's funny because my father in law lived there at that time, and he remembers it very well but not the same as your story, he lived at number 45.

I remember Ashton Street well. The Bushby's ( who produced a child every year - there were 11 to my knowledge), The Short's who took in foster children and knocked two houses into one to make more space (the son Alfie never worked from school days to long into maturity) and many others.

My Dad William Cooper lived at 7 Ashton Street 1940/50s. Does anyone remember the Cooper family?
