Harriet Gunn

by Tony Tree 6 October 2005

Does any one have any images of one of Brighton’s famous flower seller Harriet Gunn? She used to have a pitch outside Hanningtons in North Street during the second war years. I have one image of her sitting in the shop window after a bomb had blasted the windows out. I beleive she was photographed selling a flower to Max Miller as he went on his way to the station. If any one has any images i would be very interested in seeing them. the Gunn family is still in businees and is one of the finest florists in Brighton and Hove.
