These are some splendid vintage adverts for Morecambe, taken from a book about Morecambe and Heysham from fifty years ago. They show a vibrant town with many attractions vying for attention. The style, and the language, speak of an era well in the past….the kind of language, the food, the clothes, even the choice of furnishing….
