To anyone born after the 1939/1945 war, the long lines of people may present something of a puzzle, but this was the heyday of the motor bus, before public transport had been virtually killed by the ascendancy of the private car. Probably taken on a Sunday, the queues are of people waiting for the buses to take them back to Brighton, either by the sea front route or via Woodingdean. The scene is outside the White Horse Hotel and shows large houses removed in 1938 for St. Margaret’s flats.
