Obelisks and other things
This old view of the Obelisk at the Harbour shows how it was a while back - nothing much in sight under the cliffs (the sands railway station is just out of shot). Buildings protect the front of the harbour yard with gates - all now gone to be replaced by paving and some lovely concrete benches. Kent Terrace at the back, and the shops in front, and unless the Obelisk is being particularly obstructive, the lift is yet to be built, so this picture is prior to 1904.
