Photographer's Note

Looking across from The Golden Gallopers to the ruins of the West pier.
The West Pier was opened in 1866 with a length of 1115 feet and built with cast iron threaded columns screwed into the seabed. On 28 March 2003 the pavilion at the end of the pier caught fire. Firefighters were unable to save the building from destruction because the collapsed walkway prevented them from reaching it.
The ‘Golden Gallopers’ carousel on Brighton seafront was built in 1888 by Frederick Savage at his workshop in Kings Lynn. The ‘Golden Gallopers’ carousel is certainly a very popular seafront attraction – whatever the weather.

Brighton's beach is a shingle beach at high tide with a flat sandy foreshore at low water.
