create images for the recessed windows in the new Pier Hub building
at the site of the old White Rock Baths, and we are looking for
historical photos taken on Hastings and St.Leonards Promenade to
help us create two montages. We're looking to show people, attractions,
events or oddities which have happened on the prom over the past
100 years, we want to create an image that celebrates the towns
Seafront as a constant in the lives of all who live here..
One of the montages will feature images 'through the ages' and the
other will focus on 2013, the year the work started on the new Pier.
We're looking for clear high resolution images as the montages will
be quite large and will be on display for at least the next 5 years.
We'll be crediting all those who are included.
If you have any images you think we might be interested in and want
to become a part of the Piers story send them to firstname.lastname@example.org"
