Frances, Me, Southend Pier

Frances, Me, Southend Pier
Brought forward for the Vintage Photos Theme Park theme of "Piers or docks".
My neighbor Frances and me in 1964, just before our families emigrated to the States. Photo taken in Southend, Essex, with the "Longest Pier in the World" in the background.
Southend Pier was over a mile long, it had a train that took you to the end, and a "palace" with different entertainments through the years. We often went to the end on the train, but never made it to any of the shows.
There are other photos of the pier in my Brocksford Avenue album, if you're interested,

A great story and image. It sounds as if you were both living lives of adventure.

Thanks, Smiley. We were definitely excited about the prospect of coming to the States, at that point.

Wow, some pier. Interesting history too. I guess most of the old pleasure piers had their shares of disasters over the years. I understand that many of the seaside resort towns have fallen on hard times as tourists can get packaged tours to warmer vacation spots on the continent at reasonable cost. Sweet photo.

Thanks, Rick. I think Southend Pier is still thriving, compared to many.
