This portrait of a period at once familiar and remote includes views of the historic city of Lancaster, illustrates the development of Morecambe from a small fishing community to a thriving seaside resort, recaptures the wealth of Morecambe Bay's maritime history, and explores the attractive villages of the Lune Valley. In addition to vanishing land- and townscapes, the photographs record the daily lives of ordinary people - at work at Gillows or in the giant linoleum and cloth mills, fishing in Morecambe Bay, celebrating local festivals, mourning local disasters, or enjoying a day out at the burgeoning seaside resorts. Comprising the work of both professionals and gifted amateurs, this fascinating selection draws largely on the collections of Lancaster City Museums. For those who can still remember, it offers a trip down memory lane; for others, it is a voyage of discovery.
