Someone requested a photo of Blackpool yesterday, so we thought why not! This shot is of the Central pier at sunset in Blackpool, England. Blackpool is a seaside town and borough of Lancashire, North West England and has a long history of being a holiday destination for the working classes. Blackpool rose to prominence as a major centre of tourism in England when a railway was built in the 1840s connecting it to the industrialized regions of Northern England. The railway made it much easier and cheaper for visitors to reach Blackpool, triggering an influx of settlers and tourists. Shifts in tastes, combined with opportunities for Britons to travel overseas, supplanted Blackpool’s status as a leading resort during the late 20th century but it’s still a fun place to visit and we hope to one day.
