Worthing Pier has been blown over, burnt down and blown up in the last 150 years - but is still standing in fine streamlined style.
The iconic structure, which in its current Art Deco form dates from the 1930s, celebrates 150 years in April 2012. Revolutionary Arts are organising some birthday celebrations. There's a Pier Day picnic on 12th April (Facebook event link).
And throughout the birthday month, there will be a crowdsourced exhibition of pier photographs at the Flashbang studio, in the Royal Arcade opposite the pier.
To enter photos in the exhibition drop prints in to Flashbang, marked clearly on the reverse with your name if you want them returned. Prints can be any shape or size but must be original and must be unframed and unmounted. Don't worry about photographic excellence; the aim is to bring together as many photos as possible so old snaps of the pier are very welcome.
The exhibition will stay up for at least a month with photos added as they are delivered, and it will be open during the pier's birthday celebrations on Thursday 12th April.
