Aquatint by I Sutherland after an original drawn by J Cordwell, showing people on the promenade on the seafront at Brighton, with the pier designed by Captain Samuel Brown and completed in October 1823 in the background. The pier was built in the manner of a suspension bridge, with the deck suspended from cables supported by four towers and anchored at the landward end by hooks set into the cliff face. The first of Brighton's piers to be built, the Royal Chain Pier was destroyed in a storm in 1896.
