OPENING OF THE NEW MARINE PROMENADE AND STANLEY PARK BLACKPOOL. By the Right Honourable The Earl of Derby...

(Blackpool) Saturday 2nd October, 1926. Stanley Park in Blackpool, Lancashire, was a great civic enhancement in the lives of industrial workers in Blackpool when it opened in the 1920s and stands, renewed, today, as an important sports and formal garden development now listed on the Register of Historic Places and Gardens of Special Trust and Interest. Both Thomas H, Mawson, the prominent Arts and Crafts garden designer and town planner,and his son Edward Prentice Mawson were creators of this space, with the younger Edward Prentice heading up the work of the Mawson firm as his father declined in health. Chadwick in THE PARK AND THE TOWN (p.235) illustrates a plan of the park noting that "The demands of various games are by now an important factor in design." This large brochure celebrating the opening of the park and its adjacent Marine Promenade offers significant detail on developments in both sites. Tall pamphlet, stabbed and tied, 28.5 x 22 cm; (1-)31 + (i) pp. with numerous illustrations from black and white photographs and a plan + 3 full page color plates from watercolours.

Original stiff blue paper covers printed in gold and white, slightly sunned at extremities, gold faded, with original (faded ) ribbon tie; some faint smudging to extremities of title page, otherwise fine.
