    DescriptionThe nineteenth century saw Weston-super-Mare grow from a tiny village of about 100 inhabitants to a thriving Victorian seaside resort of nearly 20,000 people. A further hundred years later it has a population of almost 70,000. Despite changing fortunes during the twentiteth century, as a traditional English week at the seaside was replaced by holidays overseas and short breaks in the UK, Weston has managed to adapt - and still flourishes. Sharon Poole's new book uncovers many of the changes that Weston has seen over the years, comparing old photographs with the scene today. Dramatic developments are complemented by suprising survivals - remnants of the past tat unchanged in the modern town. The illustrations are accompanied by Sharon's in-depth and knowledgable text, which will be of interest to residents and visitors alike.
