Old Postcards

Old picture postcards of the Ulverston area, published by Lilywhite, Sankey, Friths, Atkinson & Pollitt, Stengel, Sanderson & Dixon, Tuck, Norcliffe, Salmon, Valentine, Photoway, and other local and national photographers. Many of these were produced over the short period between 1902 and 1918, due to the recent availability of inexpensive equipment and materials to print “real photographic postcards”, and the consequent public enthusiasm for collecting the postcards.

Visit the Sankey Photography Archive for over 10,000 old photos and postcards of Cumbria and Lancashire, created by father-son duo Edward & Raymond Sankey. Starting around 1900, they captured the landscape, cultural changes, and everyday lives, up until the 1970s.
