Photographer's Note

This is the old Pier in Brighton. Used to be a beautiful place... This is what the taxidriver told me: There were plans to turn the old Pier into a nice chique place with shops and restaurants, but the owners of the newer pier thought they wouldn't be able to handle the competition (the new Pier is quite horrible with gambling machines) so they set the old Pier on fire, twice! While there was no electricity on the Pier anymore.
It's collapsed now (although difficult to tell from this photo) the boardwalk and the main building are not connected anymore. There are courtcases going on about the fire.
