Madeira Drive in Brighton was one of the first streets to be properly paved. The job was done early last century so it could be used for motor sport.
Cars were absent when this picture was taken but pedestrians, wearing their best clothes, were pictured promenading.
The track on the right of the picture belongs to Volk’s Railway. In those days it ran most of the way on stilts, which can be seen here.
On rough days at high tide, waves would splash over the track and on to the carriages. Since then beach levels have increased.
This picture is from the collection of the late Terry Sinnott.
