Available in paperback for the first time, “The English Seaside” captures every vestige of English holidays by the sea. Gaudy beach huts, model villages, amusement arcades, fun fairs, fish and chips all are represented in this evocative collection of seaside photographs from up and down the English coast line. The book features every type of seaside, from fishing villages with quaint harbours packed with boats, lobster pots and seagulls, to resort towns with piers, grand hotels and pavilions. For too long, the English seaside has suffered from bad press, accused of being tatty, cold, grey and windswept, but Peter Williams finds the seaside to be warm-hearted and welcoming, about having fun, riding the rides and seeing the shows. You can experience the warmth and colour of the seaside – past and present.
