Today, Southport Back In Time is going back just over 40 years, to May 1982.
We’d love you to take a look and tell us – do you recognise anyone in these photos? Do these events bring back happy memories for you?
If you have any old Southport stories and pictures you would like to share please email: email@example.com or post pictures into our Stand Up For Southport Facebook group.
The first image shows Nomads at Wayfarers Arcade on Lord Street in Southport, complete with an antique firearm and their trusty steeds.
Who remembers nights out at The Coronation pub on King Street in Southport? This picture was taken in May 1982! Do you recognise anyone pictured? There appears to be a carriage clock on one of the tables – was this a retirement party?
In the background you can see the McDonalds signs on the building opposite. Was this taken around the time that McDonalds first opened in Southport?
Coronation Street star Jean Alexander, who played Hilda Ogden in the soap, signs autographs for fans at the St George’s Church coffee morning.
Jean Alexander spent many happy years living in Churchtown, and loved Southport.
She led the campaign to ‘Save Southport Library’ when it faced a temporary closure for three and a half years while work was taking place on The Atkinson.
She was always very generous with her time for good causes locally.

This vintage Rolls Royce is the star of the show at a Vintage Car Rally in the Floral Hall Gardens in Southport.

There used to be many Armed Forces associations in Southport back in the 1980s: there was AJEX; the Dunkirk Veterans; the Burma Star Association; the Normandy Veterans; and several others.
