Architecture at the seaside is colourful, inventive and fun. Early piers were landing stages for trippers arriving by boat but later became attractions in themselves. The author outlines the fascinating history of pier and pavilion construction, using many delightful colour illustrations. Entertainment buildings boomed in the resorts of late Victorian Britain: pleasure domes such as the Queen Palace at Rhyl catered for huge crowds seeking inspiration and enjoyment beside the sea. About the authorLynn Pearson is an architectural historian and photographer specialising in research on unheralded structures, from seaside architecture and slot machines to multi-storey car parks and mausoleums.
