The original pier didn't bend around past the Grand Hotel like it does today, hence it only had one entrance.

The Original wooden pier crossed the site of todays pier... hence the reason that remnants still exist to both sides of it.

I didn't know the original pier was made entirely from wood.

Only ever meant to be a temporary structure... hastily erected, to protect the company's right to erect a pier ... in the timescale allowed by the Dept of Trade.    Then to be developed and improved later...(when more money was raised)

You can clearly see in this shot how the angle of the original pier differed from the present one.

Yes, before extra kiosks were added and the Pierhead extended.

Sad to see two kiosks selling gollywogs on the pier.  Sad that they are still made,  :-[and sad that the people selling them don't seem to realise that they are racist,.  The displays would not be acceptable in any of our cities.  it only takes one black person to come along and take offence and report the owners to the race Relations board. :-[

What a load of bollocks!   There is nothing racist about Gollywogs as far as ordinary people are concerned.  The only racist thoughts come from those who are themselves racist!    :rage:

Llechwedd,  opinion seems to be divided on this subject..

You think that golliwogs are racist .... and everyone else in the world thinks that is nonsense.

An even split on this subject then.. ha ha.

Pray tell, how does a golliwog offend you personally?

I don't like  "Gollywog" as it can be used as a term of abuse, and if anyone is offended by it on the grounds of race, then it is racist. I personally wouldn't buy anything from a shop that displayed them. Political correctness it may be but this was originally a reaction to the way in which casual racism and sexism existed in the workplace and society in general, and I'm glad it is no longer tolerated.
