Found images of the Midland Hotel, Morecambe

Not so long ago, before memory cards and hard drives and RAW files and photoshop, it was possible to produce photographs without the aid of a computer.

Then, it was about rolls of film, regualr visits to Boots or Jessops and a steady trickle of cash out of your wallet to pay for development costs. I don’t miss it.

However, if there had been no film there would be no shoebox in my loft. And ten years after taking these images I would not have found them again.

The Midland Hotel in Morecambe is now restored to its former glory. Built in 1933, it is a Grade II listed building that had fallen into disrepair. It re-opned in 2008 after renovation work by Urban Splash.

This is how it was.



NOTE: In 1989 an episode of Poirot was filmed at the hotel.
