The Kursaal – Southend-on-Sea

Around 110 years ago The Kursaal was the only amusement park in the world. It used to occupy a site of many acres and was a place of mystery and wonder to me as a boy growing up in the area. Today it’s grand entrance hall is pretty much all that survives. But it still has some magic for me.

    Hey Bernie!
    I’m totally blown away by your photo from kursaal!

    My band Cryssis (Germany / England) have written a song about “Kursall Nights” as they grew up in the 70s and are going to release a record in early 2013 with that name.

    Is it possible to use this image for the record cover?! if yes please let us know what you need to have!!
