Church and community cookbooks can be a treasure trove of classic old family recipes (in between the Bisquick Impossible Pies and the Campbell's Cream of Crap casseroles, at least). eBay is one place to look for them, but some of the companies that assemble and publish them also sell the extras:
Morris Press Cookbooks
This link is for a site I always find interesting - she also has a great many excellent links to peruse:
This site has amazing information on Victorian cooking. I would love to take a workshop there!
I really enjoy the articles by Alice Ross about antique cooking implements/techniques, often with recipes!
You ( and many others) may enjoy this site:
Uncle Phaedrus, Finder of Lost recipes, i just such a wonderful read. He takes in requests from readers to find, lost, old or long gone business (like Horn and Hardart) recipes. You can just curl up and read the request and the answers. I've used it several times myself to local a recipe and he came through!
Well, here's a largely forgotten American classic from the middle of the 20th century: Aunt Chick, famed for pies (baked in a special mesh-bottomed pan, btw; there is a modern version of this available online somewhere, because I got one a few years ago, as my mother's original pan from Aunt Chick went missing...) and cookies.

Not sure of how old you are looking for, but I have seen war time cooking with rations allotments pamphlets. You could check eBay and estate sales.
There is also a website www.foodtimeline.org which lists popular menu items by decade. It is mostly geared to the US but they have a UK section as well. I don't think there are recipes per se.
