  • I believe my great grandmother, Emma Jane Turner (nee Best), was landlady of the Little Globe in the early 1900s. Would love to know more about the place.

  • Sorry to say that you are wrong when you say that the Little Globe was on the corner of Dorset Gardens-it was on the corner of Cavendish Street now Cavendish Place and the landlord in 1931 was Henry Page. This information is taken from the 1931 Kelly’s directory of Brighton.

  • If you look at the above photographs John, you’ll see that the road sign reads ‘Dorset Place’.

  • Henry Page, landlord of The Little Globe in Edward Street, Brighton, was my great-uncle. He was listed as a beer house keeper in census of 1901.

  • I remember the Little Globe in Edward Street. My mother used that pub and when it was the Queen’s coronation we went upstairs in the pub to watch it because we didn’t have a television. There was a lot of people. I was 10 years old. I cannot remember the landlady’s name, it was a very small pub.

  • During recent family research I have been told 3rd hand than one branch of my ancestry was landord/lady to this pub also. I will continue to reseach as many channels as possible but if anybody knows more, I would love to here from them. The period of interest for me is during and after WWII.

  • The correct name was Cavendish Street but this was changed when they altered the street configuration.

  • I just checked in my 1914 Kellys and referring back to the entries above from 2009 & 2010, Henry Page noted as being there in 1901 and 1931 is lsted for 1914 at 153 Edward St. The pub is located in the directory between 151, corner of High St and 154 Cavendish St.
