"Breezy waves toss up their silvery spray." Hood. Ryde Pier is one of the great features of this town, the popular tourist-centre for the Island. When first erected it was only 1,740 feet long, but was extended in 1824 and again in 1833 to nearly half a mile long. It contains a fine pavilion, and along its length run both a tramway and a railway."
