“A PROPER IDEA OF OUR WEALTH AND GREATNESS:

The Pier at Dover is under repair; this has long wanted it, not only on the principle of real utility but to give foreigners on their first landing in this island a proper idea of our wealth and greatness. A first impression operates materially. Nothing should be omitted which can by any means make it. (Kentish Gazette 12 – 15 August 1788, page 2)
