PANORAMA FROM THE CHAIN PIER, PRIOR TO 1868
It is a great pity that this ancient panoramic photograph is so indistinct, because it shows two old buildings of which few photos can have been taken. I refer to the buildings immediately above the red lines. 1 is the original Brill’s Baths, an awkward excrescence at the bottom of East Street, known as “Brill’s Bunion”, which was removed in 1868. 2 is the western tollgate of the Chain Pier, which gave access to the Esplanade leading to the Pier. This was removed in 1872.
