Artist's Description

“Un-editted”

Brighton’s Palace Pier was one of the last piers to be constructed in England. Designed by R. St. George Moore, it was built solely as an amusement and pleasure emporium. At 1,760 feet (533 metres) in length, and boasting a wider than usual deck, the pier had everything the discerning tripper could wish for. A 1500 seater pavillion at the seaward end was complimented by smaller pavillions containing dining rooms, grill rooms, smoking rooms and reading rooms. There were ornamental arches for the electrical illuminations, and an electric tramway ran up the centre. Provision for bathers at the pier head, and a landing stage for pleasure craft completed the picture.

Work commenced on the Palace Pier in 1891 and was completed by 1899.
