by Lynn F Pearson Paperback, 210mm x 1580mm, 64pp, colour illustrations. Price includes post & packing in UK only (Please enquire for Europe/Rest of World prices) Piers were originally constructed in the nineteenth century as landing stages for boats carrying trippers and later developed into attractions in themselves with ornate pavilions, delicate ironwork and exotic lighting. The author outlines the history of pier and pavilion construction using colour illustrations and photographs to show their development from simple wooden structures to complex entertainment venues. This book explores the allure of seaside developments, which continue to impress and entertain to this day, from the Victorian charm of the piers at Eastbourne or Llandudno to the new wave of seaside structures such as Ilfracombe's Landmark Theatre and Littlehampton's East Beach Café.
