Photography and the seaside holiday developed together. As holidays became increasingly popular, the number of photographs offered for sale as mementoes of the magical week by the coast grew enormously. When ingenious methods of colouring photographs became available in the 1890s, the coloured holiday photographic print, and later the picture postcard, defined the seaside memory. Through a wonderful collection of coloured photographs covering all the major – and several minor – resorts around England’s coast, this unique book celebrates the heyday of the seaside holiday.

John Hannavy, Professor in Art and Design at Bolton Institute, is a well-known photographer, and a writer and broadcaster on the history of photography.
