I wish to thank Dave Gary of ImagesBrighton for permission to use images from his website. Do visit his site and have a browse through the many thousands of photographs on display, a unique collection on life in contemporary Brighton.

I wish also to thank for permission to use one of their library photographs.

Likewise my thanks to Southern Water for permission to use an image in an item about their sewer tours.

There follows below a bibliography with notes on the books that I have consulted and continue to consult. I expect that as the site grows so too will the bibliography.

Likewise, I am providing a list of online resources which have provided valuable information about things Brighton & Hove.
