Regency Square

Seafront playground and Regency Square
Royal Pavilion and Museums

I found this interesting photograph in one of my latest forays into the museum’s photographic collections. I have to admit my knowledge of the Regency Square area is sadly lacking.

I am hoping that you might be able to help?

  • I think the modern building on the right was built about 1966, I can remember playing on it as a building site, not much H&S concerns back then to stop a young lad, and the night watchman didn’t start till late! I think the West Pier closed about 1975, so the photo dates between those years!

  • Oh how times do change! Although most of the cars in this photo can’t be positively identified, those that I can make out were all made in England. Three or four Fords, a minivan and a Mini, Triumph 2000, a Bedford ambulance and even an Austin A40 pedal car at the fairground. We often used to go to the Regency Restaurant which is just to the left, off camera.

  • In ‘Regency Square: its history & and its stories’ by Gill Wales & Suzanne Hinton[2018], they give the date for the new Abbotts flats, on the SE corner of Regency Square, as 1961/62.
