Repeating my earlier post where pic no longer on display

Just seen Marnie's pic of Herne Bay Pier, posted 11.3.2010. See my pic of a pier--believe this is the same Herne bay Pier. My father in shorts! about 1920/1925. Note the Billboard showing Robert Radford appearing. Think this is the Concert and Operatic Bass Vocalist(1874-1933

Whilst looking for buildings in Herne Bay for 'guess the place' I found this

Hi all. I am currently working on the pier and wondered if there was anyone on here who erected the steelwork or knows how they lifted these steels into place. Would be really interested to find out. Thanks

Looks like a good number of ornate iron castings on the end of pier building - hope they are going to be saved.

They're starting to demolish the Pier Pavilion now. I think the jury is still out on what they're going to build to replace it.
I used to go to Judo there in 1979 as well as numerous roller-skating sessions.

I must say, that I rendered and plastered that small white building on the extreme left.  :)
