Lewes Crescent, Brighton – Kemp Town


Hand coloured aquatint published by W H Mason at his Repository of Arts, 81 King’s Road, from his Fashionable Handbook for Visitors to Brighton, 1841-1842. This print has good views of Chichester Terrace, left of centre, and Arundel Terrace on the right margin. Over a window in Arundel Terrace is shown one of the early canopies, which were not in the original design for these homes but became necessary due to the summer heat in the front rooms.

Neither the print nor the handbook itself credits an artist or engraver, but it is almost certainly from the original drawing by C B Campion, a company artist for both Ackermann and Mason. Campion was the artist of a very similar but much larger view, differing only in the figures, published in Mason’s 1838 Illustrations of Brighton which is in Images of Brighton entry 1157.
