The Southwold Pier

Amusement piers are a traditional, if fading, feature of British seaside resorts. You can generally count on them to offer food, much of it Junk, arcade games, souvenirs, and some unexpected joys.

In Brighton, I once found a doughnut-making machine that included a mechanical hand that flipped the doughnuts over midway through the cooking process.

At Southwold, we found a shop filled with ingenious one-of-a-kind coin operated games and a clock that featured two fellows who pee on each other every half hour.

Arcade games. You will never win the big toy!

The water clock. Stick around to see the two fellows drop their trousers and pee

Inset a coin and the doctor will listen to your heart and write a prescription.

Wooden dog produces wooden poo.

Cross a busy highway using a walker. Harder than it looks.
