Papers and photos of the Elliott family, 1910-23
George Elliott (1860-1939) was a fly proprietor who operated horse-drawn cabs from stables in Conway Street and Shirley Street, Hove. The business lasted for 47 years during which time he drove the Prince of Wales prior to his coronation as King Edward VII.
A collection of papers and photos relating to three generations of the Elliott family have been contributed to Letter in the Attic by George’s descent Irene Butler (nee Elliott).
Irene herself was born in 1923, the first baby to be born by Caesarean section at the Brighton and Hove Hospital for Women in Buckingham Road.
