Postcard

A postcard from 1907

By Maureen Brand, North Laine resident

A Brightonian friend, now living in Australia, has just sent me a postcard she had found out there (pictured). The caption is 'Brighton, Marine Palace Pier'. Boats sit on the beach, and the pier is largely for promenade. The postmark date is 20th January 1907 and 'Lillie' reports to her friend in Queensland a week's stay in Brighton.

It has made me wonder just how many early pictures - photographs and postcards - of Brighton are to be found around the world. If you have such items do please send us a copy and we will show them on our website
