PORTSMOUTH & SOUTHSEA'S No.1 for ARTS, CULTURE & LIFESTYLE

South Parade Pier – Photographs

The public auction of South Parade Pier is fast approaching – 12th Dec, with a guide price of £190,000 – £210,000. Sold via Clive Emson and written up as ‘UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO ACQUIRE SUBSTANTIAL FREEHOLD VICTORIAN PIER FOR RESTORATION’. Further details via the website. BBC South featured the story of the sale earlier in the month and even though there is enormous potential for usage, the restoration costs will be in the millions. With the right vision and support this could be transformed into the beautiful attraction and venue it once was.

Over the years many photographs have been taken photographs of the pier and here is a small selection featuring work by Paul Gonella, John Scriven, Rusty Sheriff, Rich Heath, Andrew Whyte and John Illsley.

    Loving the B&W one in particular, not enough B&W photography these days!

    I grew up in Savoy Court, overlooking South Parade Pier, sadly now destroyed by fire and a certain football manager’s property deals. Hope the Pier can be properly saved and regenerated. It’s deep within my childhood psyche on so many levels, from fishing to kissing, from gigs to gambling.
