This is a rare first edition of
Dreamland Remembered, which has now been updated and reprinted.
This is a true collectors item.
Dreamland Amusement Park has been
synonymous with Margate since it first opened in 1920. Its
origins go back further, to a time when rival railway companies
vied to bring Victorian trippers to the seaside and music hall
and wild animals were in vogue.
Dreamland Remembered contains a nostalgic collection of more
than 200 illustrations - many not seen publicly in living memory
- charting the park's attractions over the years, from the
renowned Scenic Railway to the Big Wheel, along with Beanfeast
outings and the birth of the Osuper cinema in the 1930s.
Owned by the same family which made Dreamland famous was the
Lido pleasure centre, just a mile up the road in Cliftonville.
Here summer shows, bathing beauties and themed bars provided a
heady mix for holidaymakers.
Dreamland and the Lido brought golden memories to countless
millions and now these can be relived through the pages of this
