From the private collection of Pam Manasseh

This photograph is taken from an old family photograph album.

It depicts a tram, driven by a volunteer with police protection, during the General Strike in Brighton, May 1926.

I would be very interested if anyone can supply any details of how this strike affected Brighton and Hove.

Pam, you need to look for "The Battle of Lewes Road" here on My Brighton and Hove: http://www.mybrightonandhove.org.uk/page_id__8914.aspx
It's very interesting.
