BRIGHTON BEACH IN THE 1880s
This photograph provides a view of the beach from roughly opposite the bottom of West Street to the Pier. At this period there was no lower promenade, just a rough gravel path. The tall flagstaff marks the site of the West Battery, removed in 1858. The all–wooden railings were replaced by the present railings in 1886. I should think this photograph dates from about 1884 as the first covered seats on the promenade were introduced in 1883.
