For over 200 years, Blackpool has been Britain's number-one holiday resort—brash, noisy and unashamedly full of fun. `Progress` is Blackpool's motto, and here we can see for ourselves the contrast between the Edwardian resort and the modern one. Blackpool has been enjoyed by the millions of visitors who come every year to sample the beach, the fun fair, the Tower, and the razz-ma-tazz of the famous Golden Mile. Victorian and Edwardian postcards here reveal the Blackpool of our great-great grandparents, set alongside specially taken views of today's refurbished modern resort town setting itself to compete against the rest of the world's holiday destinations.
