"The Grandest Pier in the World"

This picture postcard of Palace Pier has a postmark of Jan.4th 1916 – 17 years after the official opening.

What a difference compared to the pier we all know today. It is a wonderfully nostalgic view of a world long past.

  • My grandfather worked as a diver driving the piles that support the PALACE Pier. The photo’s of it being reduced to Brighton Pier really annoy me cos it was and IS the THIRD Brighton Pier! Current visitors should, at least, have the opportunity to discover the rich history of Brighton’s piers!
