FUF 17 is seen silently ascending the steep Braybon Avenue. This section from the Hollingbury
terminus to Preston Drove was the final extension to the Brighton network, opening to trolleybuses on 12th.
Today's buses [route 5B] make a lot of noise ascending this section, however, over the last four decades the bungalows seen on the right would have risen at an electrifying price.
As the trolleybuses were being phased out, the first 'mini' cars were starting to appear and it would have been possible to capture this style of car in both pictures, not just in the modern day picture DSC07110.
