27 brilliant Blackpool retro pictures of the famous Golden Mile are a trip back in time

Blackpool's Golden Mile is the most famous stretch of our resort's coastline

It's where the holidaymakers stroll through a kaleidoscope of entertainment with fish and chip shops, arcades, attractions, pubs, kiosks and bingo. Towering above is our beloved tower, a symbol of our town's history with the three piers on the beach side of the Golden Mile. And it has always been that way, as these photos show in a trip back in time.
