The Britannia Pier
Medium: Photographic print
"As Yarmouth became increasingly popular as a watering-place, it was deemed advisable to provide still further accommodation, and in the year 1858, the Britannia Pier was erected about a quarter of a mile to the north of the Wellington, at a cost of £6,000: this projects further over the sea than the latter. During the season various attractions are provided, such as military music, open-air concerts, fireworks, &c., which are extensively patronised. Upon this pier is erected a signal light in connection with one upon the summit of the Sailors' Home, to warn vessels entering the roadstead from the north of a dangerous sand-bank."
