The longest and oldest of Blackpool's three piers, the North Pier was originally intended for 'genteel promenading', with a landing jetty completed in 1867 to allow visitors to make boat trips to the surrounding area. The fur stoles and mufflers worn by these passengers suggest a chilly day for June. The occasional glimpse of tartan is evidence of the town's popularity with Scots holidaymakers.
