Not a very clear photograph from the air which, however, shows how the protective sea wall was built up in stages. The main portion, fronting Brunswick Lawns goes right back to the 1880s. Then, in 1924/5 the large area in the foreground was tackled and completed, not without some difficulties, leaving a gap to be closed some years later. The contrast between the public Brunswick Lawns and the private lawns of the West Brighton Estate Company stands out clearly. From what clues exist the period would seem to be between 1925 and 1930.
