The Lake District is one of Britain’s most popular tourist gems, nestled at the heart of the North West.
The villages and mountains have been inspiration for writers, artists and climbers over the centuries, from
Wordsworth and Coleridge, to Beatrix Potter and Ruskin.
Throughout this period the Lakeland villages, including Windermere, Ambleside and Keswick, have grown and developed and the lives of locals have changed the as the area has opened up to visitors, aided by the introduction of the railway and motorways.
Lake District: The Postcard Collection takes the reader on a nostalgic journey into the villages, mountains and landscapes through a selection of old postcards which
offer a fascinating window into this beautiful area of the country.
