The Clifton Arms Hotel, Lytham - the 1890s 

 Blackpool Gazette & News, February 22nd  1895 

The purchase of the Clifton Arms

Hotel has been completed, the purchaser being Mr. Wilson, of the Newton Heath Brewery. At one time it was thought that the negotiations would fall through, but wiser counsels prevailed, and the bargain was struck on Friday last to the great delight of all Lythamites.

There is no questioning the fact that there is money in the hotel, and the surprise was very great at the reserve price being declared at £6,500 at the sale, and no one offering that amount.

The new proprietors are expected to do much to make the hotel popular with the visitors, and much can be done by the hotel proprietors to bring Lytham to the fore as a seaside resort.
