This fascinating collection of old and new photographs of Lytham, Fairhaven and Ansdell provides a wonderfully nostalgic look at these towns on Lancashire's Fylde coast. In their heyday these towns, famous for their gardens, mansions, spacious streets and luxurious hotels, attracted some of the wealthiest people in the country. Businessmen commuted daily into Manchester, retired industrialists played golf and the rich sent their children to be educated here. This was also a coast of many contrasts and extremes; as the resorts also welcomed some of the poorest people in the country. Each year, charities brought thousands of children from the slums of the industrial towns of the north here to holiday camps and homes. This book will appeal to all who know and love this area, whether it be as a home or as a place they come back to year after year.
