By The Sea - Southwold No 4 People Reportage Photos by Photographer Paul E Williams { 7 images } Created 28 May 2022

Southwold Pier - By The Sea Southwold #4 . A photo art series exploring picturesque Southwold Sea Front Suffolk, England by photographer Paul E Williams.

Southwold became a seaside resort when the town corporation built a branch line to attract tourists in 1879. The town offered bathing in private on its wide beaches and Southwold Pier, built in 1900, at 247 metres (810 ft) was long enough to accommodate the Belle steamers that carried trippers along the coast at that time. Today it is a picturesque seaside town which still harks back to an earlier era before foreign holidays were possible for the masses.
