Seeing the shot of 'The Church' nightclub reminded me of some photos I have of my dad when he ran a used car showroom from the site. I was born in 1956, so cannot remember exactly when it was but it must have been in the mid late 50s.  Will try and dig the snaps out! They show a row of cars for sale in front of this building. Dad had one or two other garages in Brighton at this time.  Anyone remember the Appleyard name?

My grandparents owned and ran Willamy's Guest House at 33 Dyke Road, opposite St Nicholas churchyard and just before the bend where Upper North Street starts. Unfortunately, the entire row of houses was bought out and knocked down, I think by Marks and Spencer in the 60s. A couple of doors down from there was Fileman's, a business specialising in crystal chandeliers, making, repairing and cleaning etc. My father worked there for a number of years, also repairing and "dipping" musical instruments.
