This photo was taken May 1918 at the fruit farm in Lancing.

“They called it the Berry Farm, Strawberry Farm, Fruit Farm, etc. It used to have rows and rows of those multifloral roses along the road. They were like hedges, and you couldn’t see much past them. They were sold to farmers to form natural fences, but quickly got out of control once they were planted. It took years to get rid of them. They made a pretty scent when they were all in bloom, though. Lovely to drive by then.”
