Pier was straight on from Victoria Road (Victoria Parade as it is now), the pier was at a very slight angle to the right.

As dd said, the entrance to the pier was directly opposite the bottom of Victoria Road. Right alongside the pier - like only a few feet away, was the parallel "pier" leading to the floating landing stage for the New Brighton Ferry. This jutted out a little further into the river.

Here's a map of 1876, showing the original line on the tide...it seems that Perch Rock Fort is not publicised on maps of this era either even though it had been around for a while (because of military significance?).

Reversing that, if you had to describe that picture in the minutest of detail, how many words would it take?

I remember seeing it being blown up on the TV News. This would have been about 1976/1977.

Stephen: the "weird shape" thing is a sewage pumping station. You did ask... sick

Anyone ever recall seeing what was touted as being the original 'Batmobile' at New Brighton Pier? Seem to think it was in a glass dome.

I'd swear I didn't just imagine it...

There was certainly a "Batmobile" at Fort Perch Rock. It was very dubious though. Probably just an old Zodiac with the roof cut off, fins glued on, and painted black.
