Palace Pier, Brigthon

In 1998 or 1999, I took some pictures of the rides, painted backdrops, and various amusements on the Palace Pier in Brighton (since renamed as The Brighton Pier). The pictures themselves are nothing special, but I loved the extreme kitsch of the pier decor, and some of the painted characters had a dreamy underground comix feel. The pier gave me a good feeling about Brighton, although I'm not sure how much of this stuff is now left. The security wouldn't let me take pictures inside the amusement arcades.
