S.AP.15: ‘Crossen’s, Southport’s Cinderella Suburb’             £16.95   £3.00   £7.50

                 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.

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.
