This postcard was sent to My Brighton and Hove by Bob Campbell whose family hails from Brighton.  Bob now lives in Brisbane, Australia.

The photograph is of Rottingdean, but which part of the village?  Post a comment below if you can help identify its location.

I suspect this view is taken looking north up the High Street, at it's junction with Marine Drive (A259 Coast Road).

This hotel has been demolished but stood on the present West St car park on corner of West St and Coast Road. See http://www.rggj.net/Rottingdean/old_pc/index.htm for a collection of postcards of old Rottingdean.

There are more of these pictures on the (James Gray collection) web-site. Enjoy.

It is certainly looking north up the High Street. The tall building on the right still stands today. It was the custom house but is now a gift shop.

This picture is, as already has been said, taken on the coast Road (in those days it was called the Dover Road) where the car park is today. The bus in the photo is the one which ran to Brighton and caused Rudyard Kipling to leave the Village for Batemans due to the sightseers on the top deck.

This photo is looking east into Rottingdean towards the traffic lights. The White Horse pub would have been on the right and the car park which is there now on the right. The tall building on the right is no longer there?
