    Default Blackpool: Hitlers playground?

    I am a hotelier in Blackpool (for my sins) and I have been researching wartime hotels in the town.

    I came across this amusing article from the Daily Mail in 2009

    KEITH WATERHOUSE: If Hitler had got to the Golden Mile | Mail Online

    Also a nice little article about the Polish troops in a Blackpool guest house

    BBC - WW2 People's War - A Wartime Holiday: In Blackpool

    It would be amusing to see Hitler riding down the beach on a donkey.

    I believe Nick has a chain of hotels situated in both cities in order to finance his vast collection of WWII items (Im starting a rumour here!)
