Bamforth Postcards

Bamforth Postcards are probably the most recognised saucy seaside postcard series ever produced. Their postcard story began in Victorian times with James Bamforth, the son of a Yorkshire painter and decorator. The company was based in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire.

Bamforth originally used his talents to produce painted lantern slides but later moved to photography which proved more successful. By the 1900's the slides had evolved into what we know now as Bamforth postcards. The humorous postcards covered social aspects of life such as sex, drinking, marriage but are always done with innuendo. Bamforth postcards were hand drawn by artists from 1910 which is quite an accomplishment when you look at how many different postcards were produced.

Apparently, the printing works where Bamforth postcards were produced has now been converted into residential apartments.

Holmfirth was also the location used for the long running BBC comedy Last of the Summer Wine which ran from 1973 to 2010.
