Blackpool, United Kingdom

Blackpool got its name form a stream of dark water draining from the moss area around Marton back in the early 1400's. A stream ran though the marshland which turned the water black, hence the name.

Blackpool became the first town to introduce electric street lights in 1879 with the Illuminations starting in 1912.
