Fresh page - usual reminder to click on a photo to go to the larger original on the Geograph website.

I don't know this island at all, but this may be the poster view:

There seem to be about the right number of mountain peaks!

A wider-angle view:

The pier is the Wellington pier and is shorter than it once was. The elaborate building on the right is not part of the pier but is the 'Winter Gardens', an early C20 metal and glass construction which has been in structural trouble for some years, I gather.

I reckon this photo is taken from roughly the same place as the poster artist's viewpoint - but there has been considerable tree growth:

The bridge was rebuilt in the 1960s - a close-up view:

The Kent and East Sussex is an interesting railway - renamed by Col Stephens in 1904 from the Rother Valley railway, he ran it until his death in 1931 when the company subsequently went into liquidation. But it carried on as an independent railway until invested in BR in 1948. Closed to passengers in 1954 and goods in 1961, but part became preserved. Here is Bodiam Castle:

No one has quite got the poster view (tree growth again?) so this is a view of the modernised pier from a ferry:

The only high-level view which I could find:

Closest I can get to the poster view - wider angle:

The 2020 sign of the poster seems to be based on the "Swan" hotel sign; the photographer was probably standing underneath the sign when he took the photo.

I think it looks better in colour.

Plenty of pictures to get a reasonable match from:

Not quite such a sunny day as the poster:

A wider-angle view - almost the only match from several dozen photos:

The cliff railway is more visible in this photo than it is in the poster.
