"This is an absolutely magnificent stroll down memory lane, packed
with brilliant photographs of how the British people discovered and
relished their holidays and trips to the seaside around Britain.
There must be hundreds of thousands of such photographs in
archives, in people's collections - I hope Pen and Sword can find
more to publish in subsequent volumes! Truly breathtaking and
hugely enjoyable."--Books Monthly
A splendid collection of nostalgic images dating back more than a century.--Evergreen, Winter 2017
