The Beulah Spa: A New Pictorial History -

Now in luxurious colour and in a larger A4 sized edition. Lavishly illustrated with the best possible pictures and numerous maps, engravings and photographs. A new look at the history of The Beulah Spa 1831-1856, a once popular natural saline spring and spa, purer than the spa's of Bath, Wells & Cheltenham. The last of the fashionable London pleasure gardens. Designed by Decimus Burton and frequented by Lady Essex, The Duke of Gloucester, Dickens, Thackeray, Kaiser Wilhelm, and Queen Victoria herself with Lord M and later on Edward VII. The Beulah Spa reigned in Upper Norwood for twenty five years until the arrival of the Crystal Palace. This is the definitive work on the Spa's history.
