Backyard BrightonBy Stella Cardus
'Backyard Brighton' is QueenSpark's all time bestseller.
First published in September 1988, 'Backyard Brighton' sold out so quickly that the second edition was already at the printers by October!
Its overwhelming appeal were the photographs and reminiscences gathered by Brighton Borough Council to record places that were scheduled for demolition during the 1930s. The book records the mostly negative responses of residents to the demolition, describing their feelings about moving and giving their opinions as to the reasons behind Brighton Borough Council’s decision.
Out of print for many years, 'Backyard Brighton' can now be enjoyed as an e-book. This contains all the material gathered by the Council plus a new selection of photographs. The downloadable file is a PDF. It is Kindle friendly and it can be viewed and read with Adobe Reader.
