DREAMLAND REMEMBERED.

DreamlandRemembered[Book: Nick Evans – 2003 – 21x27cm – 112 Pages – Many B&W photos]. Dreamland amusement park has been synonymous with Margate (England) since it first opened in 1920. Its origins go back further, to a time when rival railway companies vied to bring Victorian trippers to the seaside. This book charts the park’s attractions over the years, from the renowned Scenic Railway to the Big Wheel, along with Beanfeast outings and the birth of the “super cinema” in the 1930s. Chapter Points: Introduction; The Early Days 1863-1920; A Time of Prosperity 1920-1940; Post War Revival 1945-1968; New Brooms Herald a New Era 1969-1981; To the Millennium and Beyond 1981-2003; A Leisurely Life at the Lido 1920-2003.
