Hove The Postcard Collection

Hove The Postcard Collection - Trevor Cox

Hove The Postcard Collection

Hove, west of its immediate neighbour Brighton, was a small fishing village on the Sussex coast until its development in the early nineteenth century as a fashionable seaside resort for wealthy Londoners following the patronage of the prince regent, later George IV. Elegant Regency estates and large Victorian mansions were built in Hove, most of which survive today, albeit as flats, and the town is also characterised by the wide boulevards and avenues laid down in that era. Sussex Cricket Club made Hove its home, as did Brighton & Hove Albion FC until it relocated in the 1990s. Hove has always retained its separate identity to Brighton, and today is proud to be a counterpoint to its neighbour.

Hove: The Postcard Collection takes the reader on an evocative journey into Hove's past through a selection of old postcards that offer a fascinating window into the history of this historic town in east Sussex.
