Searching around for a topic this week I came across several vintage postcards of Blackpool Tower in my collection. As I think I mentioned in a previous posting, Blackpool is only ever somewhere I've visited via my postcard collection, but looking at these postcards again makes me think I am long overdue a visit. The sheer enormity of the 518 foot, 116 year old tower on this first postcard is incredible. Apparently inspired by the Eifel Tower, would it be so wrong of me to say I prefer this one?
