BLACKPOOL my Home town

We have reached our destination of my town In 1881 Blackpool was a booming resort with a population of 14,000 and a promenade complete with piers, fortune-tellers, public houses, tram and donkey rides, fish-and-chip shops, theatres.By 1901 the population of Blackpool was 47,000, by which time its place was cemented as “the archetypal British seaside resort”. By 1951 it had grown to 147,000 . The promenade has been re designed from North Pier to the Central Pier and in their wisdom the council has erected an outdoor stage! Having lived here thru my youth until I was 38 Blackpool is renowned for its storms !! Consequently the first concert (Elton John) was cancelled half way thru because of high winds !! In front of the stage a floor memorial to those who have entertained us over the decades Immortalised sayings of the day have been engraved into the ground.A picture was taken from Blckpool Tower top to give an idea of size,and it is a great idea (watching visitors reading them can be good fun too)
will probably take Blackpool blogs up to 3 episodes TOO much to enter for just one
