WITH photographs taken from Christopher Horlock’s new book, Brighton From Old Photographs, today’s edition of Timeout reveals some of the city’s long-gone forms of transport.

Mr Horlock, who was born in Brighton in 1953 and brought up and educated in the city, has released his book full of historical photographs after he built up a collection of photographs, maps, prints and ephemera relating to the city he loves.

The London to Brighton Veteran Car Rally is one of the most popular events in the city.

Vehicles used by those taking part in the event can be seen above left, pictured at the finishing line at the Metropole Hotel, Brighton.

Probably the most well known motoring event in the country, the first rally was held in 1896. It celebrated the abolition of certain motoring laws, particularly having someone walk ahead of a car waving a flag to warn it was coming.

The cars would have left the Metropole Hotel in London several hours before the photograph was taken.

It was claimed that during this event one car broke down and its driver managed to get onto a goods train bound for Brighton Station.

The Daddy Longlegs was around at the end of the 19th century and despite its initial popularity it didn’t operate for long.

The last public runs were in 1900 and early 1901.

Paddle steamers used to operate from both of Brighton’s piers back in the day, taking visitors on pleasure trips along the south coast to the Isle of Wight and across the Channel to France.

The vessel pictured above is the Brighton Queen, built in 1897 and owned in the early 1900s by P. and A. Campbell, the leading coastal cruise firm of the day.

During the First World War, the steamer was sunk during a minesweeping mission off the Belgian coast. It was replaced by the Brighton Queen II in 1933. This was destroyed during the Dunkirk evacuation in World War Two.

Brighton’s trams didn’t cover all roads in the city and from 1904 motorbuses were introduced. The one, far left, was the very first.
