• Short Summary

    Good shots of the seaside as we visit Brighton Pier.

  • Description

    Titles read: "A DAY ON THE PIER!".

    Brighton, East Sussex.

    View of Brighton Pier from the beach. Waves crash on the shore. People wearing coats walk along the pier and have fun at amusements such as the shooting range. A small girl has her portrait sketched. Children ride around on a roundabout.

    People eat at a shell fish shop. At a stall a girl rummages for a seashell that will tell her horoscope. Two women come out of the palmist parlour. Two women walk along the pier with their skirts flying open in the wind to reveal shorts. They wear turbans, sunglasses and little summery tops and lean over the railings to eat ice-cream from paper.

    Various shots of crowds watching a man demonstrating 'the knife of the world' by peeling an apple. Good shots of people asleep in deck chairs on the pier. One man is fast asleep with his hand up his jumper.
