The exhibition from the RPS Archives held January 20-28 proved a runaway success. Over 400 visitors came to browse through the many fascinating items assembled by Michael Laslett, our Archivist, which included many items never displayed before. These included the fortunes of the Taylor family and many other village “characters”, as well all the detailed study and photographs of St Margrets’s graveyard.
Sadly, due to ill-health, Michael was unable to give the afternoon tours of the village he had planned, but they may be scheduled later in the year. He is to be congratulated on bringing Rottingdean Past to life so well.
