Former Shops, South Coast Road
Former Shops, South Coast Road
Peacehaven's haphazard development extended to commercial and retail activities. Until the late 1970s there was no central business district as in the 1920s shops and businesses would just buy a plot and operate from that. These three are a case in point, located around the junction of Cairo Avenue, which was closed off to traffic in 1961, all originate from the late 1920s, all were originally shops but only the one at the far end is now used for commercial purposes being an Indian takeaway. The house on the left was certainly residential by the mid 1970s and was probably converted much early, whilst the one in the middle with the black spots was for a long time a small cornershop known as the Cairo Stores but that too has been converted into a residence sometime in the 1990s.
