Margate’s Dreamland park opened in July 1920 and millions flocked to enjoy its attractions in the decades that followed. A visit to the Kent coast resort wasn’t complete without a ride on the famed Scenic Railway, the Looping Star or the Dodgems.

Dreamland’s trendsetting 1930s cinema led the way in design while the ballroom became famous for dancing and big name music concerts. Its restaurants fed the hordes descending on Margate for their beanfeast outings. Later on, Dreamland would hold its own as an exciting theme park.

The resort’s decline in recent years has left its mark, leaving many yearning for a return to simpler times when ice cream, candy floss and kiss me quick hats made for heady days out at the seaside.

Dreamland Revived contains a nostalgic collection of nearly 250 illustrations from its earliest days to its reopening as Britain's first heritage theme park.

Condition: Fine.
