The Last September

The Last September


The Last September opens with a title card portentously announcing that what we are about to see is "the end of a world." Not, it turns out, too great an overstatement. In 1920 Ireland, a wealthy group of Anglo-Irish, the English-descended "tribe" who historically had overseen the country on behalf of its colonial rulers, seat ensconced in their luxurious estate. Just down the road, throughout small towns and villages, the British army is arrogantly terrorizing storeowners, and isolated IRA factions are responding by killing the occasional soldier. But at Sir Richard Naylor's palatial residence no such troubles need interfere. There the daily routine is still built around tennis matches, picnic parties, nature walks, and evenings spent on the lawn watching the stars. Young Lois (Keeley Hawes), niece of Sir Richard (Michael Gambon) and his wife (Maggie Smith), has lived there her entire life and has recently caught the fancy of a sweetly earnest military captain. But when a childhood friend of hers--in hiding after his murder of an army sergeant--takes refuge in a nearby abandoned mill, the thrill of danger and daring, of finally something different after all those maddeningly pleasant years, leads her down a different path. While The Last September is sometimes overly pretty in the British fashion, it benefits enormously from its excellent cast and novelist John Banville's smart, efficient script, which is alert to the nuances of conversations in which the most horrible threats are made and fears confided just below the polite chatter. --Bruce Reid

Blackpool's North Pier

Blackpool's North Pier

The Jewel Of The Fylde Coast

Designed by Eugenius Birch and commissioned by the Blackpool Pier Company, work commenced on the first of Blackpool's piers in 1862. The North Pier was opened on 21st May 1863 by Mr F Preston, Chairman of the Pier Company, amid much pomp and ceremony. In effect it formed a seaward extension of the Talbot Road, which had recently become host to the town's first railway station. The railway was to prove significant for Blackpool because not only did it allow some 20,000 visitors to witness the spectacle of the North Pier opening, but it provided the means by which Blackpool became the great playground of the north-west.

A landing jetty was added to the main structure in 1864, and extended three years later, bringing the overall length of Blackpool North Pier to 1,650ft (500m). Two pleasure steamers, the 'Queen of the Bay' and the 'Clifton', were also purchased by the Pier Company offering excursions to the Lake District, Isle of Man, Llandudno, Southport and Liverpool.

The North Pier head was enlarged in 1874 to facilitate the building of a fine 'Indian' pavilion, a bandstand, a restaurant and some shops. The Indian pavilion soon acquired a reputation for its quality of music, the first eminent conductor of the pier orchestra being Edward de Jong, a distinguished flautist. Later Simon Speelman, who went on to achieve fame with the Manchester Halle Orchestra, performed on the North Pier. Probably the best remembered conductor though was 'Toni', a conductor easily recognisable by his shocking head of hair. Such was his reputation that advertising was quite unnecessary, and everybody knew his orchestra could be found playing in the sun lounge (which had replaced the original bandstand in 1932) of the Blackpool North Pier.

As Blackpool's popularity grew so did the North Pier. The pier head was further extended in 1875 and 1877 with the addition of north and south wings, electric lighting was installed, and in 1896 the neck was widened, almost doubling it in size. Expansion of the structure continued into the new century: 1903 saw the construction of a new theatre, and the redevelopment of the shoreward end to include additional shops and an arcade.

Like most piers Blackpool North Pier did not escape damage from shipping or fire. It was struck by a vessel in 1892, and suffered further damage in 1897 when HMS Foudroyant, once Nelson's flagship, was wrecked in a storm whilst being moored to the pier. In 1921 the Indian pavilion was destroyed in a blaze, and its successor met the same fate in 1938. The current 1500 seat theatre, built on the site in 1939, survives only through the quick reactions of one of its entertainers. In 1985 singer Vince Hill noticed smoke when leaving the North Pier and, having raised the alarm, assisted in fighting the blaze.

During the 1960s the 'Merrie England Bar' was opened along with other amusements. The early 1980s saw ?350,000 spent on the redevelopment of the entrance buildings, to better compliment the North Piers surviving Victorian architecture. Severe storm damage in 1987 closed the seaward end jetty for four years, but when it reopened it offered the unique attraction of regular helicopter flights from the pier to take in the local sites.

Grade II listed, Blackpool North Pier today is considered the most traditional of the three Blackpool Piers. It retains much of its Victorian splendour and is devoted to the gentler pursuits of promenading and sun bathing rather than the brasher entertainment offered by its newer companions.

Blackpool Early Warning System

Blackpool Early Warning System

At the end of Blackpool's South Shore, not far from the airport, is what appears to be an enormous disco glitterball on a stick.

It is, in fact, a rather sophisticated Early Warning System.

Its purpose is to warn approaching passengers who happen to look out of their windows that they are arriving in the sort of town that has a giant disco glitterball on a stick on the promenade. Passengers who find this alarming have the option to stay in the airport and take the next available flight out, for Blackpool is clearly not the town for them.

I love it.

Unearthed (Blackpool Mysteries)

Behind the colorful charm and vibrant history of the English seaside town of Blackpool is a legacy of secrets. Secrets people have killed to keep hidden. But for Michael and Molly Graham, finding the truth has become personal. Their friend clings to life in a hospital—shot to keep him quiet—and the couple is driven to uncover what he would risk his life for…and what someone would murder for.
But the pieces of this puzzle are as disparate as any they've faced—a sunken pirate ship, a one-legged skeleton, vengeful curses and a grim family legacy. And if they put the pieces together, will they only be digging their own graves?
