Two 1904 views of Rottingdean

I was fortunate enough to have recently obtained a small set of very early snapshots taken in our area, all dated 1904. The photographs are approx. 3″ x 2″, sepia-toned, and are remarkably sharp. With today’s technology I’ve been able to produce enlargements beautifully. I would guess the pictures were taken using 120 film with a Brownie-2 camera (or something similar), but I stand to be corrected !

I’m pleased to share these photos with “My Brighton & Hove”. I hope you enjoy them and very much welcome your information and comments. Here are two views from Rottingdean.
