Blackpool In Its Hey Day

Nelson ,Lancashire, like other mill towns in that area  Nelson folk would have their summer holiday at the same week each year. Nelson week ,the second week in July would see the streets in Nelson bare as many.would head  for the seaside.Blackpool became a favourite.
'Oh we do like to be beside the seaside'
Families would  head for the golden sands after hiring the use of a couple of deck chairs. Those without children headed for the Piers or the Tower Ballroom.
I have memories of  my Dad, who could not swim padding at the water edge,while my Mum made the most of  sitting in her deck chair.I was happy to build sandcastles with my Tin Pale
