AT THE END OF THE BRIGHTON ROAD

AT THE END OF THE BRIGHTON ROAD

Doctors started the evolution of the fishing village of Brighthelmstone into the modern Brighton by ordering patients there for the air, and George IV made it fashionable. He it was who had the Pavilion built-it marks the end of our run from London-in the year 1820, and it cost him nearly a million to do it. At least a faint flavour of the atmosphere which the gay George created still lingers about the town, which can hardly forget him while his fantastic Pavilion remains.
