Bradshaw's Guide Bradshaw at the Seaside : Britain's Victorian Resorts Paperback
Part of the Bradshaw's Guide series
Bradshaw's Guide of 1863 was the staple book on what's what and where's where for the mid-Victorians and it gives the modern reader a unique insight into the world of the nineteenth-century railway travellers.
The guide introduced the notion of seaside holidays to the general public and thanks to the railways it became possible for a town or city dweller to catch a train for a day-trip to the coast and still be home in time for supper. `Oh! I do like to be beside the seaside, I do like to be beside the sea!I do like to stroll upon the Prom, Prom, Prom!Where the brass bands play:Tiddely-om-pom-pom!'Using Bradshaw's Guide illustrated with contemporary images and seaside postcards, John Christopher and Campbell McCutcheon take us on a tour of Britain's Victorian resorts.
