This fascinating collection of over 200 old photographs of Southport shows how the town has changed over the last one hundred years. Drawing on his own extensive collection of local picture postcards and memorabilia the author has selected photographs which illustrate not only the town centre itself but also many of the surrounding areas of the town that have often been neglected in other books of this kind. The sequence of images takes the form of a journey through the borough, from the north to the south, starting at Crossens, and finishing at Ainsdale and Woodvale. The choice of photographs also covers a wide range of subject material including people at work and play as well as views of the street and buildings in which they lived. Some rare and unusual photographs show the Vulcan Motor Works, the British Electric Vehicles factor, private schools and small businesses. This book will appeal to all who know the famous town either as a home or as a favourite place to visit.
