Eastbourne Pier in the early morning light

Very typical of the English seaside resorts are their piers. Only a few of those left in the second part of the. Piers built in the 19th century are still preserved, some were destroyed by fire. Eastbourne in East Sussex also has a nearly 300-metre-long pier built between 1866 and 1872. Most of the superstructures date from 1899-1901. They are mainly used as entertainment and venues (“Amusement Arcade”,, among others as a theater, but also as a bar, restaurant, tea room, a “Camera Obscura”, etc. In the front part of the pier there is the “Blue Saloon” a game room with the slot machines so popular in England. But it is precisely this area that fell victim to a fire in 2014. The photos shown here date back to 2009 and document the original condition.
