Southend, Essex ... Proposed Jetty : W. R. Morris

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An unusual and interesting item of cartographic ephemera. This small map was designed to show Southend in relation to London and major routes inland, and along and across the Thames, with reference to the intended new pier, projected in 1829 and completed only one year later. Extending 1.33 miles (2.14 km) into the Thames Estuary, it is the longest pleasure pier in the world. The bill to build the new pier, to replace a previous timber jetty, received Royal Assent in May 1829 with construction starting in July 1829. The timber pier was replaced by an iron pier that opened to the public in August 1889. Of interest is the naming of local landowners, MPs and other worthies whose support was presumably anticipated.
