S.AP.15: "Crossen's, Southport's Cinderella Suburb" 16.95 2.30 6.40



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.



 







S.AP.16: "Southport Through the Letterbox" 4.99 1.60 4.95



A Picture Postcard History of Southport -






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.
