The Pier And Harbour From The Heights
Photographer: Sedgfield, Russell
Medium: Photographic print
"Tis a grand sight, after rough weather, to watch the Channel studded with sails, a fleet of two or three hundred vessels probably leaving the friendly shelter of the Downs for their different destinations...If the sight is obtained from the Western Heights, we have the original of our illustration, which furnished an excellent view of a portion of Snargate Street in the foreground, the inner and outer harbours beyond, with the north and south piers at the extreme left, the Lord Warden Hotel, and the yet uncompleted Admiralty Pier in the distance, jutting out into the sea in the direction of the French coast."
