Clarence Pier, Southsea, 1961, Everett
A tasty slice of mid-century architecture on Southsea’s promenade. In Pevsner it is described as ‘quite an acceptable piece of festive architecture’. It is a remarkable survival in an age where anything built between 1950 and 1990 is deemed to be incredibly unfashionable and either pulled down and replaced by an ‘iconic landmark’ or viciously re-clad.
Well done Clarence Pier! Glad to see that not only are you still here but you also harbour a branch of Wimpy.
