These three photographs are all of the early 1920s period, before the roadway and promenade were widened. Note the squat face of the groyne. It had been built like this during the 1870s but in later years heavy spray from the face of the groyne swept across and damaged the Palace Pier. It was reconstructed in its present form between 1919 and 1924.
