    schema:reviewBody ""In Designing the Seaside Fred Gray provides a history of seaside architecture from the 18th century to the present day, investigating leisure, entertainment, taste, fashion and gender, and shows how the seaside even became a hotbed for moral and sexual issues - from the early use of bathing machines to twentieth-century beauty pageants and naturist groups. He relates the evolution of resort architecture to sweeping changes in how seaside nature was experienced and used by holidaymakers. The book also traces the history of the coastal resort, with examples ranging from Regency Sidmouth to Victorian Scarborough and early 20th-century Morecambe, as well as assessing seaside developments in the USA and Continental Europe, from Coney Island and Santa Barbara to Nice and Trouville." "Featuring many colourful, informative and often entertaining photographs, drawings, guidebook illustrations, postcards and publicity posters from resorts around the world, Designing the Seaside is a thoroughly readables as well as a visually fascinating account of changing attitudes to holidaymaking and its setting."--Jacket." ;
