|In Little East Street.|
In Brighton many cobblestone walls were traditionally tarred black, probably to waterproof the mortar to some extent and, with quoins picked out in white or cream. This highlights the historic construction technique and the overall effect is pleasing.

Occasionally cobbles and quoins are left bare. Perhaps this occurs in more expensive properties where the work has been carried out to a higher standard and imperfections do not need to be concealed.
In either case the architectural heritage is preserved.
