Old postcard - Blackpool, stormy night
Another scene of Blackpool, this time stormy and at night. I'm packing a suitcase already. Like splashing waves, nocturnal scenes are popular in early postcards and not just city neon either. Scene like this a quite common. One can only imagine what was going through the photographer's mind to go out and get a picture like this. There seems to be much rivalry amongst the early postcard photographers to show off their skill in capturing difficult to photograph conditions and sublime landscapes.
