James Gray: The purpose of these recently taken photographs is to record the site of the new Baths for the Brighton Corporation, still in course of construction at the end of 1980. Looking along North Place, from North Road, 11 February 1973. Two houses, 12 and 12a, formerly stood at the end of North Place, at right angles to the others and obscured the distant view. These were demolished in the 1960s. jgc_22_178
2018: The building on the right-hand side has now been converted into flats. At the end of the street, a flight of steps leads down to the Prince Regent Swimming Pool complex. (Photographer: Geoffrey Kavanagh)
James Gray: View of North Place. The two houses at the far end, Nos 12 and 12A, have since been demolished after much controversy. The street is mid-Victorian, being built about 1870. jgc_31_219
2020: The Prince Regent Swimming Complex building looms large in the background. At the southern end of North Place, where Nos 10 to 15 were lost to demolition, steps now lead down to the swimming pool complex. All the other houses pictured in the 1964 photo have survived, and have no doubt been largely modernised.
North Place runs south from its junction with North Road. The next road to the east is Barrack Yard, which serves not only the newer complex, but also the old North Road Slipper Baths building, now home to the Bright Start Nursery. (Photographer: Alan Hobden)
