Having lived in Eastbourne all my life, over 60 years now, I have noticed many changes - some good, some not so good. Shops and businesses that were thriving concerns used and loved by most - Louis G. Ford and Woolworths to name but two - are now just distant memories. Being able to jump on to the rear platform a moving bus as it passed by or to have a choice of five or six town centre cinemas to visit are pleasures no longer available. The smell, sight and sound of snorting, hissing steam engines at the station are now long gone - as is the opportunity to catch one of these on a Saturday morning to take you directly to Birmingham or the North of England. Thankfully, photographers over the last 100 years or more had the presence of mind to capture these images, so that these scenes need not be completely forgotten.
