WONDERFUL photographs like these will be available to view when The Argus’s photographic archive is made available to the public again.

Readers will be able to look through alphabetical lists of sports teams and all sorts of categories, including surnames so they can find pictures of themselves, friends and loved ones.

Today we show you a great example, with a picture of the Kensington pub darts team. The Kensington was in Kensington Gardens but is now the White Rabbit. The Kensington was owned by The Argus’s chief photographer John Caston. This is the pub darts team on September 10, 1980, alongside Ted Allsop, secretary of the Watneys brewery’s Tuesday darts league.

Above is the Splinters darts team but do you know where the picture was taken? Do you recognise anybody from their nicknames – Lancelot, Captain Fuzz, Super sulk, Little Fuzz, Titch, and Wes?

The hockey goalkeeper pictured left is doing his best for the Lloyds bank team playing against Brighton at Varndean. He is wearing what appears to be cricket pads.

To look through thousands of pictures like these for free go along to Brighton Racecourse this Saturday or Sunday between 10am and 5pm, where you will be able to purchase images.

And if you find a picture of yourself, and can prove it is you, then you can enter a free draw for a special prize, yet to be announced.

Argus editor Arron Hendy said: “Who can fail to love these old pictures?

“When we moved to Manchester Street next to the seafront we knew we were not going to have room for the thousands of old pictures we had in our library.

“Andy Garth and his great team from Brighton and Hove Stuff have done a fantastic job in putting them back in order so that we can all look through them. So even if you don’t buy any of the pictures there will be some amazing images to look at. There will be Albion pictures and images of old events, royalty, politicians, film and television stars and shows. But more importantly, I think, is the fact that some people will find pictures of themselves and loved ones that you may have barely seen before.”

Parking is free at the event.
