Excellent pictures. thumbsup
The one noticeable difference is the lack of trees in the park today compared to the pictures above

I remember when I was a (very) young kid in New Brighton, the stump of the tower was still there, and there used to be a chairlift that ran from the near to the entrance to the Tower fairground up to the remaining bit of the tower and back down again. Never went on it myself, I was a bit young for that, but I seem to remember they took down the rest of the tower in my early teens. Suppose I've got to go have a quick google session now and see whether I'm right...

Yep, guess I'm not quite that senile yet, the dates are about right. I'd forgotten that it was a fire which finally finished it off, I'd have been 12 when that happened. I think they took the chairlift down a bit before that, though.
