With reference to Dr Ashton Emery’s letter to you, asking if anyone knew the location of the photograph that was published in the Herald & Gazette on June 29, I can confirm to you that it is without a shadow of doubt Pier Road, Littlehampton, looking south to north and the River Arun on the left.
The building in the top left-hand corner is (or should I say ‘was’) the Britannia public house. This view is still in existence today, although the background has been transformed by the redevelopment of the area.
I hope this will help Dr Emery with his bucket list!
MR B.E. Reynolds
