It was held here or around here somewhere. Looks very nice!

This is probably more of what we out-of-touch USians think Brighton is though. :)

  • Actually, that second picture? That's the Brighton Metropole where the convention was held. (In the wikipedia pic, it helps to know that the chunk on the right was an extension added after construction.) Just in case you weren't being deliberately ironic ...

    • No, I wasn't being deliberately ironic. This is one of the archaic ways Brighton is in my imagination, since I've never been there and know it only from period descriptions, films and television.

      That it still exists is just -- well, I think stupendously cool! So huge!

      Thanks for telling me, Charlie!

      Love, C.
