Helen Elliott, Eastbourne Pier

31 Jul 14

Sadly I am contributing a photograph of Eastbourne Pier as it appears on the day after the dramatic fire that almost destroyed the middle section (Wednesday 30th. July 2014).  I last contributed my memories and a picture of Brighton’s West Pier, commenting that Eastbourne has an elegant pier.  Now it resembles the burnt out shell of the West Pier.  However, Eastbourne’s pier still has an elegant structure, albeit a skeletal one.  Luckily the two end sections remain and the Camera Obscura at the very end, a real Victorian treasure, is intact.

KEY: white circle = pier & black square = venue
