Sefton Looking Back

Do you remember when there was an elephant on Southport beach? Hear about the Southport Steam Packet ferry? The electric tram passing through Litherland? Wonder what it was like to see pioneering aviator, Claude Graham-White take flight over Southport beach in 1910? Imagined being at Bootle's Victory Parade after World War 2?

It is said that a picture tells a thousand words, and Sefton Looking Back is a beautifully tinted window into the colourful past of Sefton and its communities. A must for anyone with a passion for local history, photography or simply a love of nostalgia, this digital archive is the most comprehensive of its kind in the borough.
