Old Brighton Films in Colour

by David Ward 26 July 2009

I am not sure whether a link posted here will be published but I will try as it gives access to a number of video clips which are not easily accesible on line as far as I can see. Some of these I have seen for the first time today. They show many of the subjects that frequently come up on this forum: the miniature coaches at Peter Pans, The Promettes, The Palace Pier in its prime, boating pools, illuminations including the sputnik – its all there and mostly in colour. Clips date from 1897 to 1969 but I found the most interesting ones on page 3 (of 4).

You will need a good broadband connection to view these otherwise the films will keep stopping!

Lets give it a try! DRW
