Pier Street, Ryde no longer exists.
Until the 1930's, Pier Street was formed at the western end of the current Esplanade by a range of buildings on the sea side, from about halfway between Union Street and George Street westward to the present building on the sea side of the St Thomas's Street. This meant it was hazardous for motor traffic turning from Union Street into the relatively narrow Pier Street.
In 1930 a bus travelling down Union Street overturned on turning the corner killing several passengers. After the inquest, it was decided that the range of buildings on Pier Street were a traffic hazard and they were demolished. With the removal of these buildings, 'Pier Street' was no more and the area of highway was absorbed into the Esplanade.
