In June 1978 (1978 in music) they made their live debut and were joined by Duncan Jowitt (now with UFX) on guitar. Jowitt left after only a couple of gigs to form his own band, and in November the Cassidy brothers were joined by guitarist Paul Wiggin.

Vera also had her fair share of lovers: she was tempted by a former paramour in 1991 in Blackpool, but stayed with her husband. In 2000, when she believed she could die during in an operation, she confessed to Jack that Terry might not be his real son, but the product of a fling early in their marriage. Jack told Curly Watts he had always known about the affair, and was convinced Terry was his as, to his shame, they are very alike. Jack and Vera later became surrogate parents for Tyrone Dobbs (Alan Halsall), whose mother has been imprisoned for assault. Jack considers Tyrone as more of a son than Terry had ever been. Jack is fond of pigeons though Vera hates them, and she once tricks him into believing that she has cooked him a pigeon pie. Jack once agrees to sell his dead body for a large amount of cash to an artist (Maggie McCarthy) who enjoys painting stuffed humans, so he could buy Vera a Christmas present. When Vera discovers this, she argues with the woman, who then turns up, inspired by Vera. They agree to both pose nude for the artist, but on condition that they would be buried as normal.

This prompts Jack to remain in Weatherfield, although, he still offers the house to Tyrone and his girlfriend Molly Compton (Molly Dobbs) (Vicky Binns), though they insist that he remain as lodger. Months later, Jack's grandson Paul Clayton (Paul Clayton (Coronation Street)) (Tom Hudson), having returned to Weatherfield previously, confesses to the police to burning down Valandro's, Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson)'s restaurant. He also confesses this to Jack who is disgusted with his grandson's behaviour and tells him he is his father's son. Despite his disgust, Jack offers Paul £10,000 that he has received from the house, on the condition that Paul faces prison. However, Paul cannot face it and decides to flee the country. This reassures Jack that Paul is different from Terry. When Molly's aunt Pam Hobsworth (Kate Anthony) later moves into number 9, Jack decides to spend a few months in Blackpool. Upon his return, he describes at Tyrone and Molly's wedding in January 2009 that Tyrone is the son he and Vera had always wanted. Later that year, Jack meets Connie Rathbone (Rita May (Rita May (actress))), a widow and pigeon enthusiast. The two become good friends, although Tyrone feels that Jack's behaviour is disrespectful to the memory of Vera. Jack soon goes on holiday with Connie to Spain and lies to Tyrone and Molly that he is returning to Blackpool. When he comes back, Tyrone discovers the truth and is unhappy with Jack. Tyrone begins to soften towards Connie but is still shocked when Jack announces that he is moving in with Connie and he leaves on 21 September 2009. birth_date WikiPedia:Blackpool Commons:Category:Blackpool

Blackpool

'''Blackpool'''

Throughout the Middle Ages and Early Modern period (Early modern Britain), Blackpool was a coastal hamlet in Lancashire's Hundred of Amounderness (Amounderness), and remained such until the mid-18th century when it became fashionable in England to travel to the coast during the summer to bathe in sea water to improve well-being. In 1781, visitors attracted to Blackpool's sandy beach were able to use a newly built private road, built by Thomas Clifton and Sir Henry Hoghton. Stagecoaches began running to Blackpool from Manchester in the same year, and from Halifax (Halifax, West Yorkshire) in 1782. In the early 19th century, Henry Banks and his son-in-law John Cocker erected new buildings in Blackpool such that its population grew from less than 500 in 1801 to over 2,500 in 1851. St John's Church in Blackpool was consecrated in 1821.

Blackpool rose to prominence as a major centre of tourism in England when a railway was built in the 1840s connecting it to the industrialised regions of Northern England. The railway made it much easier and cheaper for visitors to reach Blackpool, triggering an influx of settlers, such that in 1876 Blackpool was incorporated as a borough (Boroughs incorporated in England and Wales 1835–1882), governed by its own town council and aldermen. In 1881 Blackpool was a booming resort with a population of 14,000 and a promenade complete with piers, fortune-tellers, public houses, trams, donkey rides, fish-and-chip shops and theatres. . By 1901 the population of Blackpool was 47,000, by which time its place was cemented as "the archetypal British seaside resort". By 1951 it had grown to 147,000.

Shifts in tastes, combined with opportunities for Britons to travel overseas, affected Blackpool's status as a leading resort during the late 20th century. Nevertheless, Blackpool's urban fabric and economy remains relatively undiversified, and firmly rooted in the tourism sector, and the borough's seafront continues to attract millions of visitors every year. In addition to its sandy beaches, Blackpool's major attractions and landmarks include Blackpool Tower, Blackpool Illuminations, the Pleasure Beach (Pleasure Beach Blackpool), Blackpool Zoo, Sandcastle Water Park (Sandcastle Water Park (Blackpool)), the Winter Gardens (Winter Gardens, Blackpool), and the UK's only surviving first-generation tramway (Blackpool tramway).
