I've always liked quirky and tacky buildings finding them far more attractive than the chocolate box cottage, and they don't come much quirkier or tackier than these Blackpool beauties.

Another kiosk, this time on the north pier. In my more daydeamy moods I often wonder if it would be possible to live in something as oddball or offbeat as these structures. I think that this one would have potential, and just think of the sea views.
