Where on the south coast is this?

I live in South Africa and have a black and white family photograph that was taken in May 1937 at the seaside in southern England.

I was in the pram and my brother Bob, who is on the left of the picture and who is now aged 86 and living in Dorking, reckons we only went on day trips to Worthing, Bognor or Littlehampton.

Well, I doubt that shot, by a professional street photographer, was taken in any of those places.

It looks as though there could be the entrance to a harbour in the background so I thought it might be Weymouth but Bob says we never went that far. From your knowledge of the coastline, is there anywhere in Sussex that might fit the photograph from 80 years ago?

My bucket list includes identifying where my pram was being pushed in 1937 so any help would be much appreciated.
