Description (Object or Artwork): This is a photographic print of Jew Street, Brighton. It is a view down the street, looking north into Church Street. This photograph was commissioned by Brighton Borough Council's Environmental Health department, as part of a visual record of areas considered for slum clearance. Some of the buildings were demolished in the late 1930s, and a car park was later erected on the western side of the site. Jew Street's name originates from the fact that Brighton's first synagogue was situated in this street. Built in 1792, it is believed to have stood on the southern end of the street.
