Brighton has grown from a fashionable resort in Georgian times, and a popular place to visit for Londoners once the railways arrived in Sussex in the nineteenth century, to today’s lively conurbation on the south coast. In this book, local historian Christopher Horlock charts the changing face of Brighton from the end of the Victorian era to the present day. Not only are many famous lost landmarks recorded, such as the Chain and West piers, Hanningtons department store and the SS Brighton ice rink, but also industrial premises, churches, schools, theatres and cinemas, plus trams, trolleybuses and branch railways.


Lost Brighton presents a portrait of a city and a way of life that has radically changed or disappeared today, showing not just the buildings, streets and industries that have gone or changed, but also a way of life. This fascinating photographic history of lost Brighton will appeal to all those who live in the city or know it well, as well as those who remember it from previous decades.
