Lost Blackpool

Availability: Out of stock

Author: Allan W. Wood, Chris Bottomley

Like all towns and cities in the UK, Blackpool has changed over the years and continues to do so. This much-loved seaside resort has changed from just a few houses fronting its seven miles of ‘golden’ beach in the mid-to-late-1700s, to what it is today with its famous Tower, Three Piers, Golden Mile, Illuminations, Comedy Carpet and Pleasure Beach. In the intervening period many attractions along the promenade frontage have come and gone and the whole seven miles developed with hotels and houses.

This book describes in words and pictures the many well-known attractions and buildings, such as the Big Wheel, The Palace, Derby Baths, Yates’s and Central Station, that are no longer part of the landscape, as well as many of the shops, schools, pubs, cinemas and churches of the 'other' Blackpool behind the seafront.

Lost Blackpool is a book that will appeal not only to the town's residents but also the many visitors who come here every year to sample its delights.
