Blackpool isn’t a particularly old town and its rapid development has primarily been fuelled by tourism in the last 150 years or so. To cater for the millions of visitors that arrive each year, Blackpool has more licensed premises than anywhere else in the country outside of Central London. Like most other towns though, redevelopment of areas and the changes in social behaviour has led to many pubs being closed or restyled.
Allan Wood and Chris Bottomley present an excellent collection of photographs from which the reader will glimpse some of Blackpool’s ‘lost’ pubs as well as the town’s more popular watering holes and established locals.
