You can almost sense the optimism that the Pier's new owners had by building the new Golden Goose building, a feeling that they would be able to revive the pier's fortunes with a contemporary entertainment and amusements offering.
I like how the various turrets on the pier reflect the three ages of the structure. At the front, is the original pineapple style turret of the entrance kiosk, dating from 1900. Behind the new build section are the two art deco style turrets, dating from the rebuilt Pavilion in 1934. In the middle is the new building in 1969, with a geodesic style roof, reflecting seaside sandcastles.
That's why your the photographer,.... and I take snaps . :)

It was a Golden age that I doubt will return sadly, in decline ever since cheap foreign holidays, a great shame!
