Brighton & Hove Albion football team near the Dubarry Perfumery Company

Image of the Month: December 2018

These players from the Brighton & Hove Albion football team were photographed by the Brighton & Hove Herald newspaper on 11 December 1937. They are at Hove railway station, the nearest station to the Goldstone Ground, the club’s home at the time.

The Dubarry Perfumery Company building can be seen in the background. Dubarry’s would move away from Hove in the 1960s, and the company was eventually liquidated in 1982, but the building and its distinctive mosaic panels with Art Deco lettering can still be seen today.

You can learn more about the history of the Dubarry building at Judy Middleton’s Hove History in the Past.
