....now in wreck and ruin.
A once thriving art-deco inspired theatre on Portland Rd spent many years as a bingo hall. With the advent of online gambling and non-smoking laws the bingo trade is in peril!
Sadly this once quite pretty building now stands forlorn.

Sent in from Paul Jackson who grew up in Hove and now lives abroad and is a regular visitor to the site. Thanks Paul.
This is Embassy Court, often controversial building, which was allowed to fall in to wreck and ruin but has recently been restored to its former art-deco glory.
Apparently in its heyday Rex Harrison used to live in its penthouse apartments.

....the 5th November, Gunpowder, treason and plot.
Each year in the UK we celebrate Guy Fawkes night - or most commonly called Bonfire night. It's an old celebration that celebrates a foiled attempt to blow up the houses of Parliament.
Mostly now it's celebrated over the weekend preceding or following the 5th itself and we all set off fireworks and build bonfires........
This shot is of Brighton fireworks on Portland Road.

I've had to revert to a library shot today and must apologise for the lack of frequency of recent posts.
The sad thing is is that my camera is away for repairs at the moment after I dropped it :(
I am inviting other contributors over the next few days to feature their particular take on Brighton and its surroundings.
please send to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks in advance.
