Cromer's Development as a Popular Seaside Resort - Cromer's Development as a Popular Seaside Resort The statement in the question is very definate and does not allow for the fact that there may have been other factors that helped Cromer to develop. It is basically saying that it was completely down to Clement Scott that this happened. However, I think that there were other factors which contributed equally if not more than Scott. Between the 1870s when Kelly's Directory described Cromer as a "fashionable bathing place" and 1908 when it was already being described as a "seaside resort and bathing place" many things happened to affect the development of Cromer....   [tags: Papers] 879 words

Now, generations later, the little town of Seaside Heights has received so much attention that it’s a wonder they haven’t transplanted The Brooklyn Bridge to Toms River just so tourists would be more comfortable crossing into the land of sea, sun and sin.

Weston-Super-Mare's Growth as a Seaside Resort - Weston-Super-Mare's Growth as a Seaside Resort From the mid to 1800's onwards, seaside resorts became increasingly popular as holiday destinations for Royalty and the upper class, then later on for the middle class and working class.

New Urbanism - New Urbanism New Urbanism, a burgeoning genre of architecture and city planning, is a movement that has come about only in the past decade.

I admired the skill and patience spent culling sounds and sculpting flytrap arrangements on this cd. As Scott says, “watching it take shape as the songs and through the production is the best part. I love the creative process the most. I could spend days, weeks, in the studio doing nothing but writing and recording, experimenting with sounds and techniques.” Produced by Liss in conjunction with Paul Ritchie, (Parlor Mob) the disk owes its edgy dark sound in part to Scott’s penchant for alternate tunings, especially the use of an open D (primarily for tone color) as it allows him to focus on the movement of internal melody and gives him a better grip on chord development....   [tags: Music Review] 1254 words

The Arguments For and Against Coastal Protection Schemes - The Arguments For and Against Coastal Protection Schemes The sea is constantly eroding the coastline. This destroys property, and people living nearby have reduced value on their houses. Natural beauty spots and walks are lost, reducing tourism in seaside towns. Solutions to this are coastal protection schemes that slow the waves down and delay the process of erosion on the cliffs. The arguments for sea defence schemes are as follows… Sea protection plans help to prevent further loss of economy caused by coastal erosion, for example; reduced property prices in 'at-risk' areas, less tourism due to destruction of tourist spots (which results in less money), and the replacement of important sites e.g.: industrial areas, ports and places of historical and geological interest would be expensive....   [tags: Papers] 406 words

Agatha Christie And Deception - Deception is viewed as a negative term in society. However, in the genre of mystery novels, it is the essential key to its success. For the reader to want to continue on, he/she must be supplied with numerous possibilities for an ending. The only way one could provide such an abundant selection is with the use of deception. Agatha Christie has deceived her readers on purpose to present more plentiful probabilities for a conclusion. “No job is trickier or more critical than inventing ostensibly fair misdirection—that is, preserving some connection with plausibility while making many characters suspect....   [tags: essays research papers] 908 words

Brighton Rock - How far would you say that the novel is not so much about Brighton as about Heaven and Hell. The choice of Brighton as a setting in the novel 'Brighton Rock' proves to be a well-drawn pitch for the action; for its atmosphere of constant bustle and goings on; for its close alignment with Pinkie and also as a metaphorical device for depicting the eternal realities of heaven and hell. Although the writer goes into detail about place names in the town (he mentions the Palace Pier, Montpellier road, the West Pier and the racetrack) the specific setting of Brighton appears to have little significance, as it could be any seaside town - "yesterday Southend, today Brighton, tomorrow" Greene's opening description of Brighton appears to be quite vulgar and this is represented through Hale's eyes, distancing himself from the bank holiday crowd he likens it to a "twisted piece of wire," uncoiling "endlessly past him." Hale removes all identity from the crowd, which appears only to exist as a collective to which individuals are surrendered....   [tags: English Literature] 2188 words
