Portslade Memories Summary


Portslade Memories by Judy Middleton

Portslade is the district furthest west in the Brighton conurbation. Originally a Downland village, it still retains a wealth of old buildings and a real sense of community - despite the arrival of industry on the coast during the nineteenth century. Today it is one of the most densely populated areas in Brighton and Hove. This book is the result of over 50 interviews with elderly residents of Portslade, recorded over many hours. They recall life in the town and surrounding countryside in the first half of the twentieth century up to Portslade's VE Day celebrations. Included are vivid memories of school days, working as a butcher's boy, life as a teacher, early cars and other transport, cinemas and entertainment, and serving in 'Dad's Army'. First issued in two volumes in 1990 and 1991, the text has been fully revised and expanded for this new edition; it has also been re-illustrated.
