This most interesting photograph was almost certainly taken in 1863 or 1864. It shows the Grand Hotel, opened in 1864, but not the West Pier, which was built in 1865–1866. The photographer was standing about 100 yards west of Regency Square, the entrance to which can just be seen at the extreme left.
Note, once again, that there were no railings at the sea side of the promenade.
