At the Seaside by Tim Wood
Part of a series which looks to the turn of the century and Victorian times, with the help of reconstructions, contemporary photographs, objects and documents. A timeline shows important inventions and events and gives a sense of continuity. At the end of each book is a list of places to visit and practical advice on how to find out more. The children in this book find out how people at the turn of the century spent their time on holiday. They discover where people stayed, what they ate and wore, and they sample some of the seaside entertainments which their great grandparents might have enjoyed.
