Thank You for Visiting the Exhibition

This exhibition featured only a small selection of the 160 photographs that can be found in the brand new book: Kursaal Memories: A History of Southend's Amusement Park, just published by Skelter Publishing. The book traces the history of the park from its origins in the late 19th century, through to the closure of the amusement park in the 1970s, and then the eventual reopening of the buildings in the 1990s. This book is for all those who carry with them golden memories of this wonderland by the sea, and for those who wish to find out why the Kursaal was known by its millions of visitors as the 'One Bright Spot'.
