Just too saucy…

The bawdy seaside postcards the censors banned 50 years ago.

Just too saucy...

They are images that epitomise the golden age of seaside holidays. Saucy postcards featuring heaving bosoms, henpecked husbands, miserable wives and captions loaded with double entendres were as much part of the fun as candy floss and donkey rides.
But more than 50 years ago, prudish officials deemed these bawdy cartoons unfit for public consumption and had them banned.

Times have certainly changed.
