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. 

S.AP.16: ‘Southport Through the Letterbox’                          £4.99    £1.25   £2.05

                  Written by  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.
