The Fishing Museum on Brighton seafront is a real treat. A beautifully curated mix of folk ceramics, prints, photographs and a fishing boat you board. We have been many times but always find new things to inspire.
And as we walked along the seafront we thought, as we often do, that Brighton is a special place. The happy memories of holidays and fun, back, back through time to the regency period have seeped in to the place. There is an underlying feeling of joy which is hard to escape. How many dreams of a summer Brighton have enlivened winter evenings in smoky London or other grimy cities?
The illustration that made us think about that woven line of happy memories stretching back to the past is from the Fishing Museum. The Skylark, Brighton, 1908 although it shows an earlier period. We love the man in the top hat who is clearly a barrel of laughs!
