Clacton-on-Sea was founded in the 1870s, so its entire history falls within the lifetime of the camera, and this means that every part of Clacton-on-Sea's history has been charted by the photographer. This fascinating volume captures the essence of the town and its people over the decades. It also charts the changes that have taken place in Clacton-on-Sea's much older parent village, Great Clacton. Featuring lost landmarks such as the Odeon Cinema, Lewellen's Ironmongery, the Mansion House and Butlin's Holiday Camp, and revealing the changes that have taken place on the beach, the pier and in the centre of the town, this book will delight residents and visitors alike.
