Blackpool Postcards

Blackpool

Blackpool postcards are a great record of social history through the years. I would think everyone has at least heard of Blackpool even if they have never visited. Situated on the Lancashire Coast in the North West of England, the town is on the North Sea.

Blackpool didn't become a seaside holiday destination until the arrival of the railways in the 1840's. Trains brought easier access to the town from industrial towns and cities in the North of England and soon brought growth of not only people but a tourist industry that thrives to this day. Many people love to visit for a fun weekend or holiday. If you like a beer and a bag of chips, you can't go wrong in Blackpool.

Popular attractions include the tramway, Blackpool Tower, the illuminations, the Pleasure Beach and of course, the Winter Gardens.

Brighton Postcards

Brighton

Brighton postcards are always popular with collectors. Brighton is a seaside resort located on the South coast of the UK. It is 47 miles south of London in the county of East Sussex. Over time, Brighton became popular as a place to visit for sea bathing which was reported to help cure illness. During the Georgian times, Brighton became well known as a seaside holiday resort thanks to the visits of King George IV who constructed the Royal Pavilion.

The arrival of the railways brought day trippers visiting from London and during the Victorian era, many of Brighton's major attractions were constructed. These included the Grand Hotel, the Palace Pier and also the West Pier. Not forgetting the Hilton Brighton Metropole. Brighton is a popular destination for foreign visitors and is also known as the unofficial gay capital of the UK due to it's large LGBT population.

Brighton is considered a hip place to visit and enjoys continued status as a tourist resort due to its location.

Backbarrow Postcards

Backbarrow Postcards

Cumbria is where you will find the village of Backbarrow. The village is in the Lake District and lies on the river Leven approximately 5 miles North East of Ulverston. Corn mills were once the prominent trade of the village but were soon to be accompanied by the town's Iron works.

The village is also known for the production of Ultramarine or "Dolly Blue" which actually gave the whole village a blue tint due to the dust from the factory.

The Lakeland Motor Museum is also definitely worth a visit.

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.
