BLACKPOOL'S BUSY CENTRAL PROMENADE AND TOWER: A GREAT LANCASHIRE WATERING PLACE

BLACKPOOL'S BUSY CENTRAL PROMENADE AND TOWER: A GREAT LANCASHIRE WATERING PLACE

Blackpool, the favourite haunt of myriads of north-country excursionists, is as highly organized for pleasure as Manchester and Liverpool are for commerce. The tower on its Central Promenade is a smaller imitation of the Paris Eiffel, reaching the respectable height of 520 feet. Like many another of our flourishing seaside resorts, Blackpool began its existence as a small fishing village with a handful of residents living in huts along the cliffs. The building of the modern town dates from the end of the eighteenth century.
