This volume takes the reader on a carefully planned tour of a large and diverse segment of Brighton, using illustrations which in many cases have never previously been published in a book. Unusually for a 'then and now' study, early prints and colour paintings are also featured (that by Edward Fox on the front cover is an example) and contrast all the more sharply with scenes of the present day.
The journey takes in the three major, parallel roads that traverse East Brighton then proceeds north, via Queen's Park, to Race Hill. Views of the various estates built to provide much-needed new housing for an expanding Brighton follow. A return is made to the coastal portion with stunning and sometimes rare views of Black Rock and the Marina. The images then take us eastward through Roedean to Ovingdean, a once sleepy farming village now transformed into a suburb of desirable residences.

Here's what you say about us...

In 1985, Douglas d'Enno's 'The Saltdean Story' - now difficult to obtain - was published and since then he has written 15 books, mainly of local or regional interest, including a parish history, two books on true crime in Brighton, and several 'Through Time' books on the Sussex area for Amberley. He has passed on to his readers his detailed knowledge of the county in all its attractive variety. He now contributes to a number of community magazines and continues to be active in the writing of books as well as translating from a number of European languages on a freelance basis despite having officially retired.
