On the Pier

A song with words and music by Peter Tranchell, probably composed in the late 1940s, and possibly written for Footlights.

The cover states:

Please return to
The Plantation

i.e. the family home, while other scores with stylistically similar covers and notation tend to state Eastbourne College or King's College, Cambridge.

First line: I'm going as far as I can on the pier.

On the Pier is (unusually) not listed in Tranchell's own Thematic Catalogue of his early compositions.

Free typeset score.
