It's nearly twenty years ago that the Virginia Reel was dismantled at Blackpool. It had stood for sixty years. In a short article, Gary Radice remembers William Strickler's masterpiece.
Incidentally, I remember my dad asking at Guest Services what had happened to the Reel the year after, and they said that it collapsed over the winter.
There are some good pictures of it in a book sold in one of the shops.
