In the light of the sad destruction of part of Eastbourne’s historic pier this summer, readers of the Eastbourne Herald may like to be reminded of its recent glory.
Shortly before the disastrous fire destroyed the pier’s art deco pavilion, East Sussex artist Ronald Hellen, painted the pier on a summer’s evening, thronged with visitors enjoying the sea views and the amusements.
Ronald Hellen’s painting, The Pier, Eastbourne, is available for sale or can be purchased as a print. See his website at www.ronaldhellen.wordpress.com. Other artworks by Ronald Hellen can be viewed at the Towner until September 14. Entry.
