A view along Deal Pier from the shore with children in the foreground watching an entertainer in a horse-drawn carriage. In 1838 John Rennie, who had designed Margate pier, was commissioned to build a pier at Deal. Timber piles were sunk but the full design was never completed and all was destroyed by a storm in 1857. It was replaced by the iron pier pictured in 1864. This pier was damaged during World War Two and rebuilt in concrete after the war.
