How has the seaside holiday reflected social divisions in British society?

How has the seaside holiday reflected social divisions in British society? Discuss with reference to at least two different sections of Chapter 4, ‘The Seaside’, in Book 4. GUIDANCE NOTE The question is designed to test your ability to write a coherent essay drawing on several sections of Book 4, Chapter 4, ‘The Seaside’. You are being asked to consider the different ways in which different social groups experienced the seaside holiday. It is a good idea to start by re-reading Chapter 4 and noting down the various ways in which different groups of people experienced the seaside holiday. There is a lot of discussion of these issues in Chapter 4. To give just two examples, Section 4.1 discusses ‘select’ and popular music venues, and Section 4.4 discusses the development of Blackpool as a working-class resort. You may concentrate on social status and class divisions in your essay, but you may also address other types of social divisions that you have noticed in Chapter 4, including those discussed in Sections 4.6 and 4.7. Once you have identified some of the different ways in which different social groups experienced the seaside holiday, you should discuss these matters with reference to at least two different sections of Chapter 4, Book 4. You may choose to discuss more than two sections of Chapter 4 in your answer, but be very careful to ensure that you leave adequate space for analysis and argument. Whatever sections you choose to focus on, make sure that they provide clear evidence in support of your answer. You should conclude your essay by briefly summarising your main points to demonstrate how you arrived at your answer to the question.
