Mystery photos of Brighton and Hove

A rave from the grave!

By Jennifer Drury

As you have probably guessed, I have been ferreting through museum photographs again.

Now I have to admit - this is a sneaky one. You will probably only know it if you were a regular visitor to the location.

For those of you who recognise it - please don't ruin the surprise - just post 'I know where it is'. I will reveal all in a couple of days - and then maybe you could write up some memories.

Good luck!

I think I know where it was...

I can only think of one place this might be, and I am not 100% certain by any means.

OK - time for a clue - think coffee bars.

I am pretty sure I know where this was.

My thought was "The Cottage", in Middle Street.

Not the Cottage Alan, I was in there a lot in the early 1970's and its not the Cottage.

You're right Peter - not The Cottage - keep trying

A wild guess - 'The Whisky a Go-Go' in Queens Square.

I think this was the Zodiac Coffee Bar.

Great ideas here guys - but this popular coffee bar still eludes you.
Will publish the answer tomorrow (Sun 22)

It's upstairs, so is it the Istanbul? entered up an iron stairway from Grenville Place and above the Western Rd shops.

Well done Geoff - it certainly is - how could you forget that awful wallpaper. Thanks to everyone - it was fun wasn't it?
