Seaside attempt 2
This is a very boring picture of Eastbourne pier with three forlorn, though brightly coloured, deckchairs in the foreground declaring ‘Your Logo Here,’ obviously without any takers - even ‘Your Arse Here’ would probably have failed to attract anyone. On the other hand perhaps it’s an advert for a band or something.
Also included in the photo are a few old people, who generally brought their own chairs to avoid paying rent on the deckchairs, and a group of teenagers sitting in a circle on the pebbly beach. Times are hard for deckchairs.
The pier was designed by Eugenius Birch and opened in 1870. It was put up for sale earlier this month with a guide price of £5.5 million. Anybody?
