LOWESTOFT The Approaching Season We understand that the Great Eastern Railway Company are in treaty with two bands for the South Pier, each to play three days in a week during the season. Visitors have been arriving amongst us almost daily for some weeks past, which has brought out the basket phaetons, donkeys, etc Amongst the new objects for visitors to inspect will be the new Fish Market, which is approaching completion and will be double the size of its predecessor. The "mount" or "look-out tower" has been removed to the east end of the building. The South Pier has undergone a thorough piling and repair, and the addition of "ledges" has been made to the posts, rails and cross-pieces placed on the harbor [sic] side of the pier last year, so that mamas will now be under no apprehension of their little ones falling into the water. But whether it will be considered an improvement in appearance, we know not; it reminds one of a continuous row of five-barred gates; they will, however, be useful. And then, there will the new iron lighthouse, which is about to be erected on Ness Point, for the guidance of the mariners from the dangerous sands off the coast, in lieu of the present low light, which, from the shifting of the sands, has become useless, or perhaps worse. We are sorry to see it stated under the authority of the Trinity Board, the inner edge of the Newcombe Sand has washed bodily in during the past winter, necessitating various alterations in the positions of some of the buoys. These, well observed by our mariners, will prevent, we trust, the excitement which the spectacle of a vessel on the sand, and the lifeboat proceeding to the rescue, would cause among the visitors expectant [sic].
