Old Lytham Photos

Old Lytham Photos

We’ve been for a rummage through the archives and found some old Lytham photos to share with you – and even some video from 1903!

We’d love to share yours too. Have you got any that you’d like to add? They can be from any era – your previously unseen family photos would be perfect – with a photo caption to explain what it is. All photos will be credited to you (of course).  Just email them to jane@theRabbitPatch.co.uk

Old Lytham Video

This first amazing clip was uploaded to YouTube by Guy Jones and shows views of the brand new electric tram route in Lytham on 28 May 1903. It’s from the Mitchell and Kenyon collection

Now watch this clip, uploaded by Gordon Birt, where you travel from Lytham to South Shore at Blackpool.

This second video combines some of the first one, with five other Mitchell and Kenyon films from 1903. Amazing!
