Southport Through Time Summary

Southport Through Time by Jack Smith

This fascinating collection of photographs shows how Southport has changed over time. Drawing on his own extensive collection of local picture postcards and memorabilia the author has selected photographs which illustrate not only the town centre itself but also many of the surrounding areas of the town. The sequence of images takes the form of a journey through the borough, and contrasts old and new images to offer a unique historical perspective on the town. As you browse through the photographs, you will notice the increase in the number of vehicles on the roads. Jack Smith's choice of photographs also cover a wide range of subject material including people at work and play as well as views of the street and buildings in which they lived. This book will appeal to all who know the famous town either as a home or as a favourite place to visit.
