Southport is yet another place I have only visited through my vintage postcard collection, but there's enough here to make me want to pay a visit one day. Originally part of Lancashire, but now in Merseyside, it lies on the west cost between Liverpool and Preston. To be honest I don't know quite what to make of these vintage postcards though. They are all real photographs but have, I assume, been colour-tinted somehow. Some of the colour detail is quite delicate and intricate, whereas other parts of it is quite bold and garish.
Good luck from Southport
