Card No. All the others in this series
have a Valentine's reference number, or
their 'JV' logo. This card has neither, but it is still presumed to
be one of the same series.
Condition - An
excellent quality printing (possibly German) with perfect corners
Information - Opened in 1866, this pier
was one of the main centres of attaction to Brighton's visitors, and
locals alike. Here is a very busy scene at the Pier entrance. Apart
from the numerous people walking around, many are sat in
deck-chairs. There is a Model 'T'T Ford at the left, a pony and trap,
two invalid bath chairs, and even an old bicycle leaning against the
central fence. This is a superb image of the Pier.
