Hastings Pier (UK) 1978


Hastings pier in the south coast of England has seen a lot. It was built in 1872. It flourished during late Victorian era.  It was first time destroyed by fire in 1917. It’s prime time was in 1930’s. Rolling Stones had a gig there on 1964.  There was severe storm damages during 1990’s.  The fire destroyed in in 2010. It has not been rebuilt yet.

I took this picture in 1978, during a calm July day.

    Great post, I’m impressed! Why did you feel like posting this almost 30 year old photo by now? I mean I love it, I’m just curious🙂

    • Thanks Sabrina! For me both travelling and photography are a continuity of the past, present and future. I once a while check my slide and negative archives, and scan some I like. When I post them in my blog, it is like linking this day to the past, and maybe give a reason to somebody to visit those places in the future.
