Some time ago I thought it would be fun to create three watercolours of maps of Brighton at different times, to show how it grew. The maps are for 1808, 1827 and 1875.
1808 - The old core of brighthelmstone, bounded by East St, North St and West St is gradually being surrounded by newer buildings, including an early version of the Regent's Pavilion
1827 - Regency Square marks the west end of town, and Lewes Crescent the east. Queens Park is laid out in the east and the North Laine is still mainly Market Gardens
1875 - The railway has arrived. Adelaide Crescent in the west balances Lewes Crescent in the east. Park crescent and Round Hill Crescent appear in the north
