St Annes Through TimeCode:
Peter Byrom 96pp, A5. When the ancient and modern communities combined – albeit reluctantly, in 1922 – the ‘Opal of the West’ quickly developed and fortunes soared. The beaches were filled with relaxed holiday makers and St Annes’ pier echoed with laughter of day-trippers. A cut above the bustling and brassy Blackpool, St Annes attracted gentry eager to make their homes in the town. The writer takes us on this fascinating and nostalgic journey in St Annes Through Time. The photographs and postcards are complete with descriptions some of which include: St Annes Pier, The Moorish Concert Pavilion, North Promenade, Porritt Houses, Ormerod Convalescent home, Floral Hall and Moorish Pavilion, Majestic Hotel, Southdown Hydro, St Annes Road, The Square, The Crescent and Gardens, Tramways, Kilgrimol School, Ashton Gardens, War Memorial, South Promenade, Lifeboat Monument, Open Air Baths, Boating Lake, Over 180 pictures, etc.
