Our photograph here shows the Mayor of Brighton and Hove, Councillor Brian Fitch and the Mayoress Mrs Norah Fitch. They are holding a large representation of the new Royal Mail stamp which is issued on September 18th and features the Helter Skelter on Palace Pier.
The Brighton stamp is one of a set of ten commemorative stamps which feature landmark seaside architecture from around the country. According to Royal Mail: “This ten stamp issue captures the spirit of the seaside experience through the buildings and structures that are exclusive to, or very distinctive of, the UK’s resorts, which were designed for the pleasure of the visitor.”
