Princes Pier is a 580 metre long historic pier on Port Phillip, in Port Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

The pier was constructed between 1912 and 1915 by the Melbourne Harbour Trust to supplement the adjacent Station Pier. From completion in 1915 until 1969 it was also a major arrival point for new migrants, particularly during the post-war period. In addition to a pier, there was a gatehouse and barriers, terminal building, amenities rooms, goods lockers, ablution blocks, railway sidings and passenger gangways.

Wonderful photo. Superior composition, beautiful focus, great in B&W. But i admit to being a little confused by the explanation. Apparently the pier torn down after 1969 since all that is left are the pilings; why was that?
