We are on the buses as we take a trip down memory lane with today’s Timeout photos.

Two well-dressed people are pictured here waiting by a bus stop across the road from Hanningtons.

Hanningtons was a department store in Brighton from 1808 until its closure in 2001.

It was the city’s oldest, largest and most diverse department store, with 70 departments including clothes and household goods.

Hanningtons started life as a single shop in North Street, but over the years it grew into a large store which took up numerous shop units in that road and neighbouring streets.

Smith Hannington had acquired the building in 1808, and opened it as a drapery shop in 1808.

The number 27 bus is photographed here outside Brighton train station on its way to Saltdean.

The number 60 bus in Brighton is going to Old Steine, which is still on a very busy bus route today.

A lady is waiting at a bus stop outside The King and Queen pub in Brighton.

This bus still runs throughout the day between Hardwick Road in Hangleton and Mackie Avenue in Patcham via Brighton and Hove.
