Britain may have been embroiled in the First World War, but local artist Clem Lambert and Brighton Museum curator Herbert Toms found time to announce an unusual discovery.

While sketching the famous ‘Goldstone’ in Hove Park, Lambert noticed from his sketches that the rock bears a striking likeness to a human face. Reported in the Brighton Graphic of 27 March 1915, the phenomenon was dubbed the ‘Rockerfeller’, after the American oil tycoon John D Rockerfeller.
