Lytham St. Anne's: A Pictorial History - R. A. Haley

Phillimore & Co, 1995, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Good - in Very Good DJ. Would be Very Good were it not for the very heavy lean.

Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the cover: “Lytham St Anne’s is a curious combination of ancient and modem. Lytham’s history can be traced over more than nine hundred years; whilst St Anne’s did not exist before 1875. Already a village by the time of the Domesday Book, Lytham remained an agricultural and fishing community until the late 18th century when it began to attract sea-bathers. Over the following century it developed into an elegant middle-class resort and residential town. In this fascinating new book, the author, an authority on the history of the Fylde, uses maps, engravings and a superb selection of old photographs to illustrate the development of these two resorts. They splendidly illuminate his narrative history and ways of life now changed for ever.”
