Lynn F. Pearson
Lynn F. Pearson is a freelance architectural historian who has lived on Tyneside since 1984. She was brought up in Lowestoft and often sampled the delights of Great Yarmouth when young, experiences which led to a long-term interest in the architecture of pleasure buildings, especially those of the seaside. 
She has worked at Hull School of Architecture, was a research fellow at the University of Birmingham and wrote the history of Ormesby Hall, Middlesborough, for the National Trust. Other published works include The Organisation of the Energy Industry and The Architectural and Social History of Cooperative Living (both Macmillan), and The Northumbrian Pub: An Architectural History (Sandhill Press, Warkworth), as well as many articles in specialist journals.

Her main professional interests are seaside pleasure buildings, the development of seaside resorts, the history of fairgrounds and amusement machines, and the architectural history of pubs, breweries and sports buildings. Leisure pursuits include playing hockey and golf, running half marathons in summer sunshine, being taken for walks by her dogs and relaxing in pleasure buildings.

Lynn wrote the foreword to Kursaal Memories: A History of Southend's Amusement Park.
