The Palace Pier by night

Photograph of The Palace Pier at night

“This is the pier by night. This is one of the pictures which tells about the atmosphere in Brighton. The lights, the games, the life by night. There are so many things to do in Brighton. When I look at it, because it is very old, it always makes me think about the old period, so it gives a different character to the seafront. When it is cloudy and windy in Brighton the pier is very, very beautiful. It is very good to conserve it.”

  • My grandad worked as a night watchman on the Palace Pier, not sure when but believe it was around the late 1940s to 1950s. There was a newspaper article which I have been trying to find for a long time, written about him, entitled ‘The Loneliest Man at Christmas’ as he was working on Christmas day.
