Brighton, Sussex
Photos, Maps, Books and Memories

Historic maps of Brighton and the local area, hand-drawn by Ordnance Survey cartographers and Samuel Lewis.


The Aquarium was the venue for the 'Chinese Jazz Club' which was run by a man in a straw hat called 'Bonnie'. I was a regular as a student and despite the name all I recall was R&B music from a range of bands and singers including Muddy Waters, Blind Lemon Jefferson (I think) , Long John Baldry and Rod Stewart - then known as Rod the Mod.
