Event description

Description

In the early 1950s, a Postcard Censorship Board was created in Blackpool to determine those humorous postcards that could be sold in the resort and those which should be prohibited. In this illustrated talk, Tony from Heritage Blackpool will discuss the work of the Postcard Censorship Board and the postcards that caused a stir. Refreshments will be available.

All adults welcome, no booking required.
