The Devonshire Park theatre in Eastbourne, still in use I think.

Ok, so this is not showing the pier at Eastbourne but it is showing the Western Lawns and the Martello Tower. The buildings look a little more regal, the roads look empty (because there aren't hundreds of cars parked on the roadside like today) and the open space at the top is now the tennis courts and the Congress Theatre. The Winter Gardens and the Devonshire Park Theatre can be seenand to the left is the start of the Grand Hotel.

Incorrectly caption "The Pier" - should be The Wish Tower Eastbourne.



Note the horse trough to the left of the lamp standard. This was erected in 1887 by the Metropolitan Drinking Fountain and Horse Trough Association and removed in the 1960s along with most of the others. It may be one of those now at Drusillas.
