Andy Garth: First auction of the year



It's that time again, the first auction of 2017 of all things Brighton, Hove and Sussex, which I run with Robert Jeeves, the postcard man in Queens Road, Brighton.

The sale is on Tuesday 28th March at the St Leonard's Church Hall, Glebe Villas, Hove with viewing from 6.30 and the sale starting at 8pm.

There is a great selection of 240 lots including photos, postcards, books, bottles and ephemera with prices from £2 upwards.

The examples in the first picture are a small selection of original photos from the 1880s showing the Chain Pier and bathing huts and some great views along the seafront these are priced from £4-£15.

The next photo (Lot 110) is a view across Woodingdean in the 1930s during its construction with a guide of £8.

The great photo with the aeroplane and car is an early shot of Shoreham Airport from approximately 1920 and is full of interesting content priced around £20.

The last photo is a fine shot looking south into Brighton Station from 1962, so not that old but a view that is no longer there.

If you want to view any of the lots then they are all available at Robert's shop at 36 Queens Road, Brighton.

If you would like a copy of the catalogue, email me at

We are still amazed of the amount "stuff" that people have or find and put into our sales, so if you have anything you think might be of interest email me or pop into the shop at 28 Western Road, Hove, BN3 1AF
