Brighton East Sussex Crowds watching seaplane landing

In May of 1913 Eric Gordon England a test pilot of the time landed his plane just off the Brighton Coast. The Radley-England Waterplane was based at Shoreham nearby but judging by the crowds on the beach and on the pier it was still a spectacle that everyone wanted to see.

Recently I have acquired a negative of this event which shows the crowds and the plane in a 7in x 2in format which would make a nice wall print and talking point.
