The story of the Spanish City Fairground and its famous entertainment complex.

The history of Whitley Bay ’s Spanish City is retold in a collection of nostalgic anecdotes and unseen photographs spanning the past century. The book, which was published by North Tyneside Council, also features popular fairground rides, financial records and architectural plans.

The book is based on the major exhibition which accompanied the May 2010 centenary event. Much extended, with more information and never-before-seen photographs and plans, the book is the most comprehensive record of the history of the world-famous Dome and Spanish City Fairground.

Chapters of interest to amusement park and roller coaster enthusiasts, include: 'The funfair takes shape'; 'The rides'; 'Riehl's Reel' (a chapter on the legendary Virginia Reel ride); and 'The Corkscrew' (a chapter on the famous 1980s roller coaster, including colour images of its construction).

Condition: Fine. As new.
