In this week’s Looking Back we have delved into our archives to look at some vintage postcards after one reader sent a nostalgic postcard overlooking the promenade.

This vintage postcard, right, was sent in by reader Mrs Joan Atkinson.

An elegant postcard of the Midland Hotel.

It shows the promenade in 1909.

Mrs Atkinson said: “This was sent to an aunt of mine many years ago and on coming to live in Morecambe many years ago she passed it on to me.

“I would like others to see how busy it must have been as it was when I first stepped off the tram here.”

Do you have any vintage postcards of the resort?

Reader Dsvid Pearson supplies this postcard scene of holiday crowds on the sea front at Morecambe. We're not quite sure about the date it was taken, but the weather certainly looks familiar! If you have any old pictures suitable for use in our Looking Back feature, please send them to chief photographer Bernard Howe, together with relevant details including the year they were taken, if possible. All will be copied and safely returned.
