Sea-side seating

click photo to enlarge
This ornate cast-iron seating - all scrolls and dolphins - follows most of the perimeter of Blackpool's 1,118 feet (339m) Central Pier, and doubles as railings. It dates from the pier's opening in 1868.

"Ornament and structure were integral; their subtle rhythm sustained a high emotional tension, yet produced a sense of serenity."
Louis Sullivan (1856-1924), US architect
