The timber yard of Peerless & Son at 47, Middle Street, 17 October 1965. This was an extremely old established family business, which had occupied these premises for more than 100 years. Even as far back as 1822 John Jackson, Timber merchant was here, while the name peerless appears in the 1840’s. In the 1845 Directory the yard was occupied by Peerless and Bent, Timber Merchants. Within a short time after this photograph the firm moved to Shoreham and the premises have been merged with the adjoining car dealers’ showrooms.
