Old postcard - Blackpool, looking south
An old handcoloured photographic postcard from about 1905. Folk are out and about on a reasonably sunny day at the English seaside resort. The tide is out and the streets are so uncluttered. This shot is elegantly composed the pink dress in the middle of the three walking ladies leads the eye into the picture-plane beautifully.
