Famous throughout the country, and beyond, for its Tower, its Illuminations and its Pleasure Beach amusement park, Blackpool is the archetypal British seaside resort. But there's more to this Lancashire town than donkey rides, sticks of rock and 'Kiss Me Quick' hats. Authors Roger Frost, Ian Thompson and Jack Southern take the reader on a fascinating journey through the town's past, from its days as a watering hole for the wealthy to its rather less salubrious reputation as a magnet for Hen and Stag weekends. Along the way, they unearth tales of a 13,000-year-old Elk, early Jaguars, the legendary Bond Bug, an iconic biscuit and one of Britain's most exciting sports cars. Secret Blackpool delves beneath the surface of this enduring old seaside resort, revealing a lesser-known past that even most local people don't know.
