How times have changed...

Did you know that the Royal Pavilion & Brighton Museums team are on Flickr? There are loads of fantastic photos on there including some from the archives.

I particularly like this one of Gardner Street as it shows that the North Laine has flourished from a drab street into the vibrant, bustling shopping area it is today:

I never realised Komedia used to be a Tesco! Could not imagine a big Tesco in the heart of the North Laine now :) Komedia is a much better choice
