Description
A history and celebration of the British seaside in 100 fascinating profiles, each illustrated with nostalgic colour and black-and-white photographs. Loved by generations of holiday-makers, the British seaside has been popular for health and leisure for over 300 years. This engaging collection explores the histories and stories behind fixtures of the burgeoning seaside resort or bucket and spade holiday. Exploring sights all along the British coast, from the healing waters at Scarborough Spa to Southwold Pier, and encompassing the lesser-known tales behind deckchairs, sandcastles, donkey rides, amusement arcades, crazy golf, ice cream parlours, fish and chips, saucy postcards, and more. Learn about the fashions and crazes, medical ‘science’, engineering ingenuity and social changes which have all contributed to why we all want to be beside the seaside.
