Day out in Morecambe



As I’m unable to go to Morecambe tomorrow, here is my contribution to the photograph taking of the city!

These photographs remind me of the very first photos that were taken once the camera became mobile. They were used by families in particular to document holidays, hence why many of the photos in the era feature beaches. It was after the development of Kodak; the camera became associated as a toy. It is perfectly suited to portraiture.

Today photos are used for the same way. Holidays in particular are where families and friends document great times in the sun. The fish and chips on the beach lives up to the stereotype of the English holiday.

1880, or 2013; there are remarkable comparisons!
