EDITORS COMMENTS
West Pier, Brighton: A Timeless Symbol of Seaside Pleasure and Resilience This evocative black-and-white aerial photograph, taken on 17 April 1949, captures the West Pier in Brighton, a beloved seaside landmark that first graced the coastline in 1866. Initially built as a second pier to attract holidaymakers to Brighton via steamer, the pier's head was extended and a magnificent pavilion was added in 1893. In 1916, a concert hall was incorporated into the pier's design, further enhancing its allure. The pier's unique architecture stands proudly against the backdrop of the tranquil blue waters and the expansive sea. The pier's intricate details, including its ornate pavilion and concert hall, can be clearly seen from this bird's-eye view. The pier's elegant curves and graceful arches seem to dance upon the shimmering waves, creating a captivating tableau of the British coastline. Sadly, the pier's story is not without its trials. In 2003, a devastating fire ravaged the superstructure, leaving only a skeletal remnant of its former glory. However, the West Pier remains a symbol of resilience, as efforts to restore and preserve this cherished piece of Brighton's history continue. This photograph, taken by Aerofilms, offers a glimpse into the past, showcasing the West Pier in its heyday. The image serves as a poignant reminder of the pier's rich heritage and the enduring allure of the British seaside.
