Format: Hardcover
The amount of,what must have been, painstaking research Mssrs.Hardy and Ward have without doubt lavished on this book cannot go without the highest praise. They tell the story from the first holiday camp pioneers , through the halceon days of Warner's, Butlins and Pontin's right up to the horrendous and ultimatley dissasterous corporate takeovers of the multinational conglommerates. From small plots of land with a few tents, through those Knights of the industry Sir Billy and Sir Fred's well designed wonderlands of holiday heaven, updating to the bottom-line led commercial treadmills they have become. The attention to detail, the factual accuracy and the historical photographic treasures unearthed by this dream team must be read and seen to be believed. It is indeed the absolute BIBLE for holiday camp fans, and a truly magical study of what in truth must be acknowleged as an important aspect of a particullarly British branch of social history.
