    Excelent, takes me back a while used to go to New Brighton a lot.
    The good old days with the donkeys on the beach, the swimming pool
    and 1000,s of people on holiday, shame it is nearly all gone now.
    BTW are you changing your avatar to the new camera ?

    phew ! ... I feel like I've been on a day out
    I like all those shots of everyday things like eating ice cream, the courting couple, the kids and the dogs having a great time the red and blue buckets and spades, the golf.

    very nice Gerard.

    Default Gerards New Brighton Pics

    Loved all the pics Gerard! And good to see New Brighton looking so well! My wife and I spent a lot of time there back in the mid 50s, so brings back lots of good memories. I wonder if the 'Spanish Bar' in the lower floor of the 'Grand Hotel' is still in existence? Cheers!

    The Grand was demolished last year. There have been plans in to develop residential property on this site but, as far as I know, they have not been approved.

    Manwhile, the former Chelsea Reach (at the bottom of Victoria Road) has been converted into apartments known as the 'Chelsea Plaza' and these are now available to let.

    Wow! Someones been busy! Goodness me! I just don't know where to start really. Just well done! Never seen New Brighton looking so good!

    The image above of the crane and the tower grounds is something to do with the Water Board I think; theres a massive round hole behind those railings. Might be a bottomless pit: New Brighton's latest attraction!

    Keep up the good work!

    Could the large hole have anything to do with the old Ghost Train that ran underground for a short distance at about that point?

    I have a nice article off the train.
    Can anyone remember this>> It was on the front of the train. I have had it for quite a few years and goes with me to every VW rally I attend.

    Gerard, it's good the way you feature people in the photos, it adds more interest - and especially as they are always smiling and looking pleased that they are having their picture taken. They are cheerful images that make you smile just looking at them.

    I was at New Brighton late afternoon today...

    I guess many adults of today had memories at Chealsea Night Club
    It is Luxury Chelsea Palace Apartments now.
