Water planes were a big attraction for Brighton in the early years of aviation with crowds coming to watch them.

The planes operated from the Paston Place station of Volk's Railway. The hangar there not only stored the planes but also hosted cinema shows.

Among the plane enthusiasts were railway founder Magnus Volk and Hermann, one of his sons.

Pictures of the planes and other historic features of East Brighton are being shown in an exhibition to be held at St Mark's Church in Eastern Road, Brighton.

Called East Brighton Seen, the exhibition will also include interactive events. It runs from today until Saturday, May 12 between 2pm and 6pm daily.

The organisers are East Brighton Bygones.

  • Send your pictures, along with a note about where they were taken, to Adam Trimingham, The Argus, 9 Dyke Road, Brighton BN1 3FE.
