This engraving shows Brighton seafront, looking east, with the old Bedford Hotel on the left.
The Bedford Hotel still exists today, although it was rebuilt following a fire in 1964.
What can we see?
It is a busy scene.
There is a woman, in a billowing skirt, chasing a dog. Is it taking her for a walk?
There are bathing machines on the beach to take modest swimmers out to sea.
A girl is riding in a cart pulled by a goat. These goats carts were a popular seaside ride from the 1830s to the 1950s.
What else can you spot?
