Pictures of old Eastbourne shops wanted

I wanted to thank those who have put an effort into making the Facebook group website ‘Gone but not forgotten...Eastbourne’s vanished shops’ such a wonderful, rich depository of old pictures.

Those of us with a love of history and a fascination of what has gone before will truly appreciate the group.

I’m appealing to any readers who may have pictures of the interior of the old Tivoli Cinema or the Constitutional Club (which adjoined the Cinema) as I’m doing some research into the building, and it’s proving absolutely fascinating.

Perhaps you could send them in to the group? I’m sure many happy memories of Eastbourne folk took place in both establishments, and for amateur historians like myself, it would be a pleasure to see.
