Mystery Photos of Brighton & Hove

Mystery photo
Royal Pavilion and Museums Brighton and Hove

As you are all probably aware, when I publish a ‘mystery’ photo, I know where it is, but just like to see how clever you all are!

Well, this instance is entirely different! I have no idea what it is. I do not even know whether it qualifies for Brighton & Hove. All I know is that I found it trolling through B&H local history photos section in the museum.

So please put me out of misery – someone – please!

  • Just west of King Alfred near the old West End Cafe!

  • I would be surprised if this was Brighton, Jennifer. The beach is too flat and there is no height between the beach and the pavement. Also, the lamp post doesn’t look right. I don’t know where it is though!

  • The building is still there today, however it’s somewhat modified, it’s called Alex’s Cafe.

  • I remember it like that in the 1960’s, the modification must have been one on those “1970’s improvements”!

  • I agree with Peter Groves. It was a covered seating shelter close to the West End Cafe in Hove. I haven’t walked along that part of the sea front for very many years so I don’t know whether it still exists.

  • The fishing dingys (and low huts) can also be seen behind the building. These belonged to Joe Hawkings, who hired them out by the hour, I spent much of my pocket money on them in the summer around 1967 – 1969, and no life jackets!! You could also buy fresh fish from him quite cheap!
