In this, a companion volume to his definitive history of Yorkshire's pleasure piers, Martin Easdown turns his expert attention westward
- to the Lancashire coast. His highly illustrated survey of the piers constructed at famous resorts like Blackpool, Morecambe, Southport & St Annes-on-Sea celebrates structures that are among the most exuberant & evocative of the Victorian age. Each of these historic piers has its own character & story, yet all of them represent the optimistic style of the British seaside resort at the peak of its popularity. In those days the Lancashire coast, & Blackpool in particular, became the principal holiday destination for the workers of the nearby industrial towns during their Wakes Weeks. The piers that survive are fascinating relics of that lost age. In this meticulously researched account, Martin Easdown describes how these extraordinary buildings came to be constructed, how they were designed & financed, how they were used, & how hazards beset them
- fire, storm, ship collision, war damage & ever-present threat of insolvency. His entertaining book reveals
- & records
- a neglected aspect of the history of Lancashire & the northwest.
