Under the Boardwalk
Under the promenade that runs along the seafront at Brighton, there are "arches", hollow spaces of varying depth, height, and weather-proofness. Some of these are used for storage (mainly, it seems, for portions of the wrecked pier), some are occupied by permanent shops and galleries, and some give temporary shelter to stalls selling handicrafts, souvenirs, and the like. Generally, as in these two images, what goes on behind these stalls is rather more interesting, visually, than what goes on at the front.
