Chris: Thank you. These are holidays as they used to be in the 1950s..
Pretty cool - sort of "toy camera" like... She is too tiny! (or he is too big)
Chris: That could be my dire attempts at capturing perspective Elizabeth..
This is great Chris, reminds me of old photo's of Blackpool....

Haha!! I remember the days of the knotted hankies and the lack of leisure clothes. "Uncle Fred" is a big chap, isn't he?
Chris: Yes he's big all right, the product of two breakfasts every day..

Stockings and court shoes, too
Chris: I know..

People often dressed very formally - men wearing suits and ties - on the beach in days of yore Lisl. It is a vanished world..

I remember my mother wearing a smart costume to go out on picnic
Chris: A different world wasn't it Lisl..
People knew how to dress for the beach in those days

Haha - Fred looks very funny - I recall this sort of sun protection on his head. He even wears long John's despite the heat!
Chris: This was Britain in the 1950s Philine, in many way ghastly..
My word, just how it was in the 50's, fortunately my Dad didn't do that.
Chris: I'm very pleased to hear this Brian
I think I know them. 😀🙂🙃
Chris: Yes indeed..

In traditional beach wear smile
Chris: Correct for the 1950s I'd say Tom..
