Comments about this page

I have read the article on North Street with some interest. Being an old Brighton boy it brought back a lot of memories, however the one place that seems to be missing is a small department store that was at the top of North Street by the name of Leesons. I don't know when and if this store opened and closed as I have been out of Brighton for over 50 years but I remember it had a model railway in the basement which was like a magnet to all kids, for teh princely sum of one old penny. It would run around the tracks for about three times. There were several other exhibits in this area so around the busy times it was very popular. If any fellow Brightonians remember this it would be nice to hear their comments.
