13 photos of Blackpool through the decades - its streets, shops and shaping the future

A real mixture of scenes here which depict life in Blackpool through the decades.

They have been plucked from our archives and some haven’t seen the light of day since they were first published in The Gazette years ago. From strip show venues to the demolition of some of Blackpool’s most prized shops as the town’s redevelopment took place, its beaches and piers, they are an eclectic look at times gone by.
