Skegness was little more than a village, with fewer than 400 residents, most of whom earned a living as fishermen or farm labourers, until the town's first rail link was built in the mid 1870s. Once the trains started coming into town, Skegness burst into life as a successful seaside resort. The frequent rail excursions that brought visitors in their thousands to Skegness also gave rise to one of the town's best known icons - the irrepressible and cheerful Jolly Fisherman. He was created in 1908 by artist John Hassall, for an advertising poster at the request of the Great Northern Railway Company.
