In 1830, King George IV, creator of Brighton’s Royal Pavilion, died after a ten-year reign. Just 16 years later, the first photographs of the town were taken. This talk will reveal 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 will also illustrate the overall development of the town. You’ll also see 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.
