Old seafront posters

Old tourism posters showing the seafront planting I talked about in the last post, and promoting the benefits of the ‘covered walkway’ along Madeira Drive – now known as Max Miller’s Walk.

For health and pleasure all the year round

Here’s a photo of the speed trials in 1905, with climbing plants clearly visible along Duke’s Mound.

And here’s the front in 1932, full of greenery. Let’s keep Kemptown seafront green, don’t you think?
