This photo is of a group of Brighton Deep Sea Anglers around 1950, although I am not certain of this. My father is the bloke with a pipe at the back. He was known as Dink ‘Benny’ Benham. Of course he did have a proper name, but it was never used.
A club house between the piers?
I don’t know why he was there with the group, as he didn’t fish. Also he never smoked a pipe at home as far as I can remember. I think he just knew them and went to their social get-togethers. I believe the Deep Sea Anglers had a club house and bar on the lower prom between the piers.
Can you help?
Can anyone throw any light on this group? Maybe you can recognise someone here. If you can, please leave a comment below.
