For all our pomp and circumstance us Brits just can’t resist a bit of cheek, and saucy seaside postcards are certainly no exception.
These bawdy cards were first printed in the early 1930s and were a huge success with British holiday makers, at the peak of their popularity selling in excess of 16 million a year. Shortly afterwards prudish officials deemed these naughty cards just a little too risqué and had them banned. Ooh err!
