Rare old pic­tures that

Our se­ries in which Ge­off Wright looks at the his­tory of South­port and nearby ar­eas

Southport Visiter - - Nostalgia -

HERE is a sight for any sore eyes – some in­ter­est­ing and rare views of our lovely re­sort, fished out of my own ar­chives, for your nos­tal­gic plea­sure.

I will be re­turn­ing to our al­pha­bet­i­cal se­ries shortly, but in the mean­time, why not dig out any­thing nos­tal­gic you may have hid­den away, and not seen for ages!

Have a good rum­mage dur­ing your spring clean­ing – through those back draw­ers, in the at­tic, un­der the stairs, in that spare room, or wher­ever you might keep your “bits of old South­port” ma­te­rial, and let all the other read­ers have a look.

Please text me on 07402 344020 or email south­por­this­tory@gmail.com and I will get back to you.

Mean­while, com­ing soon to your Nos­tal­gia pages, will be some good clear images, all ex­tremely rare, from the “Sefton Look­ing Back” col­lec­tion of South­port pho­to­graphs, kindly sup­plied from the lovely peo­ple at Sefton Dig­i­tal Archive.
