If there's one shot on this whole website that captures my childhood, then this is it! The glory days of rain-soaked, freezing terraces and the heady smell of avtur. Just look at all those individual security breaches on the International Pier! One must remember that there was absolutely no terrorism in the 1970s, so such freedom and easy access was the norm - and taken for granted. Far cry from today's sprawling mass of unrecognisable concrete, obscured views and no convenient (and warm) gift shop - outside of which this picture was taken. Happy days. Divs too! I must have been in Geography at the time. Oh well.
