Comments:

The original pier-head concert hall was destroyed by fire in 1903. The current Pier Pavilion was built in 1905 half way along the pier. A cafe and shops were built at the end of the pier on the site of the original building. The pier beyond the Pavilion was breached in 1940 for defence purposes and removed completely after the war.
