Still a working hotel some sixty-five-plus years after
Stan and Babe stayed there.

Blackpool, Britain's No.1 tourist resort, played host to the world's No.1 comedy team on two occasions.
The first was a one night stay at the Metropole Hotel, in 1932 when, upon their arrival,
Laurel and Hardy fans filled the whole of the area shown in the photo above left.

June 1947 found Laurel and Hardy doing a one-week appearance at the Palace Theatre
on the seafront, whilst staying just outside Blackpool, at the Clifton Arms Hotel, Lytham St. Annes.
