Blackpool Promenade, Looking North
This photograph was taken from near to the top of Blackpool Tower. Below can be seen the North Pier; above it and to the right the War Memorial; and to the right of it, the Metropole Hotel.

The Tower dates from 1894 and is a Grade I. listed building. It was commissioned by John Bickerstaff, the Town's famous Mayor, after he visited the Great Paris Exhibition in 1889 and was impressed by the Eiffel Tower. Blackpool Tower rises to 158m (518ft 9 inches) and can be seen from most places within a 30 mile radius.
