This is a photograph of Hove Regatta in 1893. The crowd of people on the beach are just opposite the end of Medina Terrace, which can be seen at the top of the photograph. At this period several small, ancient buildings extended eastwards from the bottom of Sussex Road and backed on to the open beach. It was not until the following year that the building of Medina Esplanade was projected and this was built in two distinct stages, between 1894 and 1900.
