It was very different back then:-
In 1920 (ish) he local drapery business of Dale and Kerley had expanded to become a department store supplier of higher-end goods. It replaced Victorian properties and was designed by the Eastbourne architect P D Stonham.
Described by Pevsner as ‘Baroque, with round-arched dormers over circular windows’ its elevations are decorated with rusticated pilasters, cartouches and swags. Internally it possesses a domed second-floor area with skylights, used as a restaurant/café and venue for inter-war years daily tea dances. In WWII it was reportedly turned over to parachute-making. Post-war bomb damage repair saw the addition of modern side extensions consisting of horizontal bands of glazing and solid panels.
100 years later it remains empty but with an expected rebuild as ground floor shops and flats above.
