Violinist Joseph Marcantonio and harpist Frederick Alexander played in the shopping areas of Brighton from the 1940s to the early 1960s. They went out every day in all weather throughout the year. As well as North Street and East Street, they were often to be found at Dyke Road by the end of the Arcade. After Joseph died, Frederick continued on his own.
