The sheer joy of the, My Brighton and Hove website is that it enables you to reminisce, compare notes and learn. Contributions accompanied by personal and often formerly unseen photos have not only come in from local residents, but also from every corner of the world. As a local history enthusiast, Brighton born and bred but now living abroad, I have made a number of contributions. So, when set the daunting task of selecting only eight favourites from the many thousands of pages, I chose some that I personally had a hand in, because they reflected my interests and events in former youth. I trust I will be forgiven for that.
