    Within the context of this extract?

    They came in by train from Victoria every five minutes, rocked down Queen’s Road standing on the tops of the little local trams, stepped off in bewildered multitudes into fresh and glittering air: the new silver paint sparkled on the piers, the cream houses ran away into the west like a pale Victorian water-colour; a race in miniature motors, a band playing, flower gardens in bloom below the front, an aeroplane advertising something for the health in pale vanishing clouds across the sky.
    Looks like it means the paint was shimmering/glistening/shining brightly.

    He probably means what you can assume that's not actually stated.

    Here it sounds like they're probably going for something like "It was recently painted" or something but it does technically say new so maybe not.

    we can infer that something magical or out of the ordinary may happen as sparkling is usually associated with magic

    perhaps sparkled in that context can be used to say that the place is dreamy, unbelievable, out of this world
