Blackpool Tower and the Winter Gardens, Blackpool. July 1920. The Winter Gardens, together with the Tower and its attendant buildings, established Blackpool as the premier seaside resort in England. It is a vast entertainment complex containing a number of individual elements built round a pre-existing house over a long period between 1875 and 1939. Since completion in 1894 the Blackpool Tower had not been painted properly and the steelwork had started to corrode. Between 1921 and 1924 all of the steelwork was renewed.
