Early Brighton Photographs
The Keep Archives, The Keep, Woollards Way, Brighton
Thursday February 8, 2.30pm-3.30pm
In 1830, King George IV, creator of Brighton’s Royal Pavilion, died after a 10-year reign. Just 16 years later, the first photographs of the town were taken. This talk by author and local historian Christopher Horlock reveals the earliest photographic images of Brighton, from the 1840s onwards. They show how the Pavilion estate, principal streets and seafront looked at the time, and there will also be views of buildings and amenities now lost, including the Chain and West Piers, the old Bedford Hotel, bathing premises, and municipal properties of the Old Town area.
