TQ2904SE KING'S ROAD 577-1/37/370 (South side) Thirty-eight lamp posts on the Esplanade

GV II

38 street lamps between the western borough boundary and the Palace Pier (qv). The cast-iron standards date from 1893 and are so dated on a tablet fixed to the standard by the West Pier (qv); brackets and lamps were installed in the 1930s in copper and brass, but were replaced by angled lights in 1980, and then by fibreglass replicas of the 1930s design in 1982. Octagonal base narrowing towards the top, the sloping sides decorated with foliage ornament; then a knop with nailhead ornament, with a baluster form decorated with acanthus leaves above; then the column proper whose lower quarter is decorated with diagonal foliage sprays, the rest ribbed as far as 2 short maintenance arms; above the maintenance arms is a spreading basket capital. 2 curved brackets, the space between them filled with openwork ornament and surmounted by the borough's arms; from the brackets hang 2 octagonal spiked lanterns. The first 26 street lamps from the west stand on the north and south sides of the Esplanade alternately; the rest on the north side only apart from the thirty-second, which is set back.
