BRADFORDIANS have traditionally flocked to Morecambe over the years.

As well as being a popular resort for day trips and holidays, it was where people from the Bradford district often retired to, and for a long time the Telegraph & Argus was on sale there.

Not for nothing was the Lancashire coastal town known as ‘Bradford-on-sea’.

In August, 1949 the Yorkshire Observer reported that between the wars Morecambe had developed to become one of the country’s top 10 seaside resorts: “Morecambe and Heysham are a gem set in the claws of the Lakeland mountains and the Pennine Chain. The sunsets have to be seen to be appreciated. They are the crowning glory to a day beside the seaside.

“The view across Morecambe Bay is known as ‘the million dollar view’.”
