The highly acclaimed book about Britain's seaside pleasure buildings from 1870 to 1914, by architectural historian Lynn Pearson.

The book studies the late Victorian and Edwardian pleasure buildings of the English and Welsh resorts, showing how the magic of the seaside was created. Chapters look at the financing of the buildings, palaces at the end of piers, the pleasure domes, theatres of opulence, crystal palaces beside the sea, seaside amusements, and the first picture shows.
