Description

Gary Cross publishes the findings of this largely forgotten study by the Mass-Observers who followed the annual pilgrimage of labourers to Blackpool, hoping to discover what attracted workers to this centre of Victorian culture.

Reviews

` … helps to recreate for us something of the feel of a vital component of mass-popular culture and as such should be warmly welcomed.' - Social History Society

`It's a fascinating social document topped and tailed by informative modern appreciations of Mass-Observations methods.' - North West Labour History
