Subject to both natural and man-made dangers, of the ninety-one pleasure piers that once decorated the British coastline, just fifty-five remain. Situated in the shadow of the Blackpool Tower, work commenced on the first of Blackpool's three piers - the North Pier - in 1862. Over 20,000 visitors came to its opening in 1863, and the Victorian pier continues to attract crowds to this day. Featuring many never-before-seen photographs, this book illustrates the history of this outstanding example of seaside piers, and is sure to bring back cherished memories for all who have enjoyed a turn on this iconic pier.
