Backyard Brighton : 2008 edition


Backyard Brighton, re-edited, includes new background information, further interviews, quotations, newly discovered photographs.

Backyard Brighton is a picture of working class life in Brighton during the depression of the 1930s. Told with historic photographs, maps, and personal interviews with residents, we gain a strong feel for this forgotten part of Brighton’s history.

The two thousand copies of the first edition sold out within six weeks. Followed by two more editions, the book has been out of print for several years …. the 2008 edition added new discovered material, and sold out again. The publisher has since acquired some unsold copies.

From the forward by Selma Montford: “I first heard of the collection of ‘slum’ photographs from an Environmental Health Officer in the early 1980s. When I asked whether I could see them they admitted they had been lost…” They were found again in a plastic carrier bag in a cupboard in the council offices.
