Hello

The Palace Amusements building in New Brighton is getting a paint job which will make it blend in with the Floral Pavillion. I am glad they a re getting rid of that terrible green.

First, here is a picture from January

Laugh my tits off if they painted the Floral Pavilion in green!

Makes such a big difference now that they redecorated the Palace. It was an eyesore on the Prom.

I loved the green colour - anyway I couldn't resist!
I've been down to the Floral and done a quick roller paint job to match the Palace! smile

There seems to be another thread with some pics here

There was a pic of the building with the clock and signage on their website but they have changed the site since:
