These old postcards show fascinating scenes of Lancaster more than 100 years ago.

Guardian reader Philip Sandham got in touch with us to say he was sorting out his late mother-in-law’s belongings when he came across a “full to bursting” book of old postcards of the city and surrounding areas - plus many of mid Lancashire.

Philip said it seemed a shame not to share them and he felt sure other readers would be interested in looking at them. We agree wholeheartedly with Philip so here is a selection.
