Deep sea Diver mural new Brighton

 Brez – Neptune Hotel, Victoria Road

On the side of the Neptune Hotel a one legged man can be seen diving amidst an array of golden coins all gently drifting to the ocean floor. The mural remembers Frank ‘Peggy’ Gadsby who would dive for pennies off New Brighton pier. He became known for his phrase ‘Don’t forget the diver sir, don’t forget the diver. Ever penny makes the water warmer’.
