|Clacton-on-Sea is a
comparatively new town, founded as recently as 1871. It takes its
name from the ancient and peaceful village of Great Clacton, having
been built on an area known as Clacton Beach, then occupied only by
three Martello towers and a scattering of coastguard cottages. This
book deals with its first beginnings to its height as one the
country’s leading seaside resorts in the 1920s and ’30s, with a
superb selection of old pictures, capturing its streets, beach, its
famous pier, paddle steamers and the Great Eastern Railway.
