Discover Fleetwood’s heyday as a Victorian seaside resort, cargo trade, ferry services, lifeboats, about the docks and industrious fishing industry – both inshore and deep sea, trawlers at war, the chemical giant ICI and so much more.

This exhibition takes a look at postcards and letters sent from soldiers to their families during WW1. Focusing on the role of the postcard in the soldiers’ lives, it explores the difficulties of communication, including censorship, and more. The display consists of letters and postcards from Lancashire County Council's own museum and archive collections. The exhibition invites visitors to share a little part of the lives of the soldiers through their own words.
