Goat carts were a popular treat for children on Brighton seafront during the early years of last century.

These two youngsters appear to be enjoying themselves on Madeira Road, now called Madeira Drive. A caption on the postcard says: "Our Morning Ride".

The road looks much the same today but Madeira Drive, even in the winter, is far more bustling now.

Perhaps one reason for the absence of traffic is the date of April 4, 1915 - well into the First World War.

The picture comes from the collection of Terry Sinnott of Brighton.
