REMEMBER the days when summer meant a day at the seaside? For generations of children
from Liverpool and the industrial towns of Lancashire, Southport was a magical kingdom.

It was a journey to another world; a weekend playground for millions where the sun always
seemed to shine. Crowds flocked to the beach and pier, as well as attractions such as the Floral
Hall, parks and gardens, open air swimming pool and zoo.

Pleasureland, though, ruled supreme, the undisputed King of the Castle. The squeals of excited
girls on the Cyclone roller-coaster, the laughter of riders on the Traumatizer as their worlds were
turned upside down. The excitement of the rides, the penny arcades and side stalls, all
consumed by a mouth-watering aroma of candy-floss and sugar-laced doughnuts. This land of
thrills was the ultimate escape.

Central to it all was the pier, which promised an energising walk out into the sea, dotted with
fortune-tellers, entertainers and slot machines, along the way. Those of a lazier disposition
could catch the rattling train which ran up and down.
Southport Then is a pictorial trip down memory lane, from the grandiose splendour of Lord
Street to family fun at the seafront and pier. Featuring over 100 photographs from the award-
winning archives, magic memories include the Lakeside Miniature Railway, Southport Flower
Show through the decades and many more.

Published as part of the Liverpool Echo and Post's best-selling heritage collection, in
partnership with the Southport Visiter, this special 84-page magazine will appeal to anybody
interested in Southport's rich history.
