"London, Midland & Scottish Railway enquiry office at Blackpool, 15 June 1927. This kiosk was situated at a prominent place in Southport, so that passengers could find out what time they could take a train home if they were there for a day trip. Blackpool had been a very popular destination for a holiday or day trip since the 18th century and the coming of the railways helped the town to expand and cater for more tourists. "
