TQ3104 : 23 Gardner Street

taken 10 years ago, near to Brighton and Hove, Great Britain

23 Gardner Street
23 Gardner Street
Originally a residential property that was occupied by E Boucher along with TQ3104 : 24 Gardner Street, TQ3104 : 25 Gardner Street, TQ3104 : 26 Gardner Street, TQ3104 : 27 Gardner Street, TQ3104 : 28 Gardner Street and TQ3104 : 32 Gardner Street and also had premises at 22-24 North Road not to far from here. After that it seems to have reverted to residential use until the 1890s when a couple of traders passed through before becoming a butcher for over 30 years albeit under a number of different owners. The longest tenure was that of outfitter and hosier, H Woods who traded from here for over 30 years and may have been responsible for the lovely mosaic floor at the front of the shop as that seems to be the period many were added elsewhere. From the 1960s onwards there has been a revolving door of traders passing through here some even sharing the building, as I'm guessing the ladies hairdresser called head Above was a pun on their location on the first floor. The current occupiers, Mr Toppers, have been here about three years and are a local chain in the city.
