EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph, taken between 1894 and 1910 by W and Co, offers a glimpse into the past of Blackpool, Lancashire's iconic seaside resort. The image, titled OP00480, captures a breathtaking view looking south-east from the North Pier towards the Blackpool Tower. The North Pier, a popular promenade, stretches out into the Irish Sea, providing a vantage point for this stunning scene. At the heart of the photograph stands the Blackpool Tower, an architectural marvel that was built between 1891 and 1894 by Maxwell and Tuke. Inspired by the design of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Blackpool Tower was an engineering feat that symbolized the town's prosperity and ambition. The tower's intricate lattice structure and impressive height made it an instant attraction for visitors, drawing crowds from far and wide. In the background, the Big Wheel adds to the vibrant atmosphere of the scene. This early amusement ride, which first opened in 1896, was one of the first of its kind in the UK and became a beloved icon of Blackpool's Golden Mile. The combination of the tower, the sea, and the pier created an irresistible allure, drawing visitors to the coast for leisure and relaxation. This photograph not only showcases the beauty and charm of Blackpool during the late Victorian era but also serves as a reminder of the rich history and traditions that continue to make this seaside town a beloved destination for generations.
