FOR better or for worse, Brighton and Hove is always changing.
You only have to walk along the seafront to get a taste of the different styles.
In a matter of a few roads you can see everything from glorious Regency terraces to brutalist blocks and Art Deco flats.
The first few photos in today’s Timeout give an idea of the changes over the years.
The main image shows the ongoing battle to retain one of Brighton’s finest buildings.
It shows workers mending the roof of St Peter’s Church in 1988.
You would certainly need a head for heights for that kind of work. It doesn’t look like they even have any ropes.
Much the same work is being carried out at St Peter’s at the moment – which just goes to show what it takes to keep a magnificent building like this standing.
The photo centre left is rather dramatic. It looks like a scene from the Blitz.
It is in fact the demolition work ahead of the building of the Asda at Hollingbury in 1987.
The photograph to the left of the Asda shot shows developments at Nile Street in 1989.
The picture to the right of it shows the then newly built New England House in Brighton.
Away from the theme of development, there are some fantastic photographs on this page.
We love the shot of the Kemp Town Pram Race from 1983.
Can anyone remember this? It certainly looks like it attracted a crowd.
If you recognise the two gents racing down the street then please get in touch and let us know.
Above it is a fantastic picture of an old car at the Brighton Speed Trials from the mid 1980s. But can you tell us what model it is?
