              Suburb’ written by the late Harry Foster.

              Crossens, part of the parish of North Meols, was a

              detached settlement, on the northern fringe of what is

              now Southport.With a history quite different from that of 

              other areas of the town. Its situation on the southern bank

              of the Ribble estuary resulted in it enjoying much richer

              agricultural land. Farming dominated Crossens, but as

              Southport developed as a resort and residential town in

              the early nineteenth century, it became an out-of-site

              dormitory for the town's poorest paid labourers and others.

              Written by  G. A. and A. G. Burgess

              In compiling this collection of old postcards, we are not

              attempting to present a complete or concise history of

              Southport - that has already been done more than

              adequately in other publications. What we have tried to do

              instead is present a look into the past, through a varied

              selection of scenes, subjects and events which have taken

              place in the resort over a number of years.

              all of these questions can be found inside.
