From grand beginnings in 1900 to its current sorry state, Colwyn Bay Victoria Pier has certainly had its ups and downs. Contribute your old photos of the pier to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 750ft pier has suffered several fires in its history, with new buildings put up each time.
But there's no doubt the pier has played a big part in the town's life. It was a regular venue for pop concerts at one time.
The Grade II listed structure has been a popular spot for anglers, as well as people just taking in the view.
However, the cost of maintaining the pier has resulted in much debate over its future and the role of public bodies, as well as private individuals.
The most recent owner, Steve Hunt, bought the the pier in 2003 and started to restore it, but was later declared bankrupt.
It's not just the top of the pier that has to be maintained.
Colwyn Bay promenade before the pier - could this be the shape of things to come? Some say it should be demolished.
