St Annes Pier

Ooh the excitement of finding escaped pennies and threepenny bits in the pay-out chute.  The guilty naughtiness of claiming the coins. Then feeding them to ever-demanding mechanical machines hoping for a big win!

Bagatelle, Win-a-Chew, Wheel ’em in, Greyhound Derby, one armed bandits, replaced by electro, press a button, flashing, noisy, sparkling beauties.

I get that same thrill finding the odd 2p or 10p today.  I’m 10 years old!

St Annes Pier, completed in 1885,
originally intended as a sedate promenading venue
for visitors to the town.

That’s all changed.

Amusements rule!
