Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

The West Pier is a pier in Brighton, England. It was designed by Eugenius Birch, opening in 1866 and closing in 1975. The pier was the first to be Grade I listed in Britain but has become increasingly derelict since closure.

The pier was constructed during a boom in pleasure pier building in the 1860s, and was designed to attract tourism in Brighton. It was the town's second pier, joining The Royal Suspension Chain Pier of 1823. It was extended in 1893, and a concert hall was added in 1916. The pier reached its peak attendance during this time, with 2 million visitors between 1918 and 1919. Its popularity began to decline after World War II, and concerts were replaced by a funfair and tearoom. A local company took ownership in 1965, but could not meet the increased maintenance cost, and ultimately filed for bankruptcy. They could not find a suitable buyer, so the pier closed in 1975 and subsequently fell into disrepair.

Black and White.

All prints are lovingly produced on Fuji DP II paper which is fade resistent and yields high-image-quality digital prints. This paper offers excellent tones, sharpness and image quality.

Feedback on prints sold to date have been positive and customers have been happy with the work produced by the professional printers used to directly supply my work to those who are regular collectors.

Any questions please ask and I will provide an answer to you promptly.
