British Seaside Piers

Front Cover
Ian Allan Publishing, 2008 - Transportation - 128 pages
There are few symbols more redolent of the great age of the British seaside holiday than the sinuous lines of the pier stretching into the water. For generations of holidaymakers, piers at many of the country's leading seaside resorts provided an extension of the promenade and a focus for a variety of entertainments. This remarkable book draws upon the extensive collection of aerial photographs of seaside piers taken by the Aerofilms Company since 1919 to record the changing face of the British seaside over the years. It is one not to be missed by local historians, as well as holidaymakers headed for these popular destinations.
